    I saw a piece of glass lodge/lodged through/in her chest.

    To our horror, I saw a piece of glass lodge/lodged through/in her chest.

    Which word in bold in each case should I use?

    Thanks.

    Re: I saw a piece of glass lodge/lodged through/in her chest.

    If you saw the piece of glass actually hit her chest, and penetrate it, then you should say " I saw a piece of glass lodge in her chest". If you arrived after the glass had actually penetrated her chest, then you should say " I saw a piece of glass lodged in her chest". If the glass was sticking out of the other side of her chest, then it would be "...lodged through her chest".
