Man survives six nails driven into head

Postby Sublime » Thu May 06, 2004 8:19 am

Holy Ouch!:ANAL:


A construction worker had six nails driven into his head in an accident with a high-powered nail gun, but doctors said Wednesday they expect him to make a full recovery.

but wait, it gets better:
"He is basically normal," Quinonez said.

If my doctor said I am basically normal after having six nails in my brain I'd go to a new doctor!

Boy is that guy lucky........... :shock:

Nail guns have a switch where you don't have to pull the trigger, all you have to do is tap it against the serface that you want to nail and the gun will shoot a nail. Normally the recoil is enough to bounce the gun back so that it will only shoot one nail, but if the guy was laying on it, 6 shots one after the other........... :shock:
