    I think that's a fake. There's a lot of clues there.

    I think it's a fake.

    The racket shadow doesn't seem go coincide with the picture. 1. the shadow seems a bit too dark. 2. the distance between the racket and background should cast a different shadow regardless of camera flash or room light. The shadow seem to laying right on the background objects instead of being cast out by the light.

    Also did you guy notice that only the racket has a shadow while nothing else does.

    Should be real!
    Its on most major newspaper!

    The moral is:

    NEVER PLAY WITH PEOPLE THAT USE
    CHEAP (OR FAKE) RACKET!

    Make sure u check your opponent's racket before play!

    羽 球 拍 折 斷 飛 插 入 頭
    廣 州 某 高 校 的 陳 姓 體 育 老 師 在 觀 看 羽 毛 球 訓 練 時 , 竟 飛 來 橫 禍 。 對 面 一 名 學 生 在 殺 球 時 , 球 拍 折 斷 , 金 屬 杆 連 同 圓 形 球 拍 劃 了 一 道 弧 線 飛 出 , 恍 如 標 槍 , 直 插 入 陳 老 師 兩 眼 中 間 的 額 頭 , 深 達 兩 厘 米 。 緊 急 送 院 經 醫 生 三 個 小 時 手 術 , 才 將 球 拍 拔 除 。

    醫 生 表 示 , 額 骨 本 是 人 體 最 硬 的 骨 頭 之 一 , 但 因 球 拍 剛 好 插 進 只 有 一 元 錢 硬 幣 大 小 、 額 骨 中 最 脆 弱 的 額 竇 部 位 , 才 會 插 入 腦 內 。


    The above is from Apple Daily Hong Kong.

    Took the doctor 3 hrs to take it off. The racket was 2cm deep into the head!

    IF you at the racket the actual part that went through his skull is the handle. So this is fake. How does wood pierce your skull?

    FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE !!!! obviously it's fake. shadow is photoshop or somthing. no way a racket handle could pierce your skull when it's too thick. especially in that far. the racket must been launch from a rocket launcher. how the hell would you get that in your head in the first place. lol

    poor guy, died due to badminton racket.
    the handle go through the eye, into the brain.

    Actually the eye socket is covered by bone so it won't hit the brain.

    hm.....
    how long is our racket's handle?
    i can see the cone already reached his eye. my guess, the end cap already way far in....
    unless, this so called "broken racket", the handle is broken into a sharp edge....?

    The bone thickness behind the eye should withstand the force of light wood breaking it.
