You’ve heard about someone being knifed in the back right?  Well, this just takes it to a whole new level.

Billy McNeeley of, get this- Yellowkife Canada has had a knife blade stuck in his back for almost three years.

Apparently Billy was stabbed five times during an altercation at a birthday party back in 2010.  He went to the hospital and they stitched him up, apparently neglecting to take X-rays.

For the past three years the injury irritated Billy and set off metal detectors, but he never thought much of it.

Then on Monday Billy was scratching the wound when his nail caught on something solid and pointy. He went to the hospital and doctors removed a blade measuring about three inches long!

To cut a long story short, Billy is now doing just fine.
