As a result, the medical team immediately conducted necessary laboratory and radiological examinations for the patient, which confirmed that he had a lacerated wound in the perineum and a rupture in the diaphragm, stomach in the left chest, a rupture of the bladder inside the abdomen, and a fracture in the pelvis.

They also indicated that immediately the medical team consisting of surgeons, orthopedists and urologists performed surgeries in two phases, the first was a temporary diversion of the digestive tract "temporary anti-natural anus" and a cleaning and endoscopy of the perineal wound, and the second phase of surgery was conducted after the perineal wound had healed well without complications, returning the digestive tract to normal by closing the anal passage and reconnecting the colon.
