A girl from the Mekong Delta Province of Hau Giang has been discharged from a local hospital after doctors removed a piece of glass from her chest.

Nguyen Xuan Mai, 5, ran into a glass cupboard when she was playing with relatives, severely injuring her lung and diaphragm on January 17.

She was rushed to the general hospital in Can Tho City with a punctured lung and torn diaphragm.

Doctors surgically repaired Mai's diaphragm and removed a six-centimeter shard of glass from her pleura, a serous membrane which lines the thorax and envelops the lungs.

Mai was then transferred to Can Tho Children's Hospital for further treatment.
