Shoulder blade

Mugging victim Julia Popova calmly went home after being robbed on her way home from work - without realising she had a six inch knife stuck into her neck.

The 22-year-old office worker had grappled with her attacker when he snatched her handbag as she walked to her parents' home in the Russian capital Moscow.

But she was so shocked by the ordeal she didn't know that the thug had buried a kitchen knife in her neck just fractions of an inch from her spinal cord.

Her horrified parents rushed her to hospital where surgeons managed to remove the blade without damaging Julia's spine.

"Shock had kicked in and her body prevented her from feeling any pain. She simply walked home without feeling the knife in her back," said one medic.
