According to Dailymail, the arrowhead became stuck in his cheek after his horrified grandmother broke the arrow while trying to pull it out from the boy's face.
The boy was saved after doctors conducted a 30-minute operation and removed the arrowhead from the boy's oral cavity. Jiangxi Metropolitan Daily reported that the boy was shot in Fengcheng, Jiangxi Province, on the evening of September 26.
However, the action left the baby bleeding. The arrow also broke into two parts. Doctors from The First Affiliated Hospital of Nanchang University carried out a computerised tomography (CT) scan on the boy.
They found a four-centimetre-long (1.57 inches) metal arrowhead stuck in his cheek.
'The arrowhead entered his head in front of his right ear and got lodged near his mouth,' said Dr Yan Junfeng.
The baby underwent a 30-minute surgical operation to have the arrowhead removed from his mouth. He had to stay in the hospital for seven days for further observation.
Recalling the incident, the baby's grandmother suspected the arrow was shot by one of the neighbours living in the flat above them.
'I looked up as soon as my grandson got shot, but the man walked away,' she said.
Liu Wenlong, the boy's father, guessed it could be a 'revenge attack'.
'They had argued with either my mother or my father before. That's it,' Liu cried.
The incident has been reported to the local police, who are carrying out further investigation.
