No, really. CNN’s running video of this poor guy whose friend accidentally shot a nail into his head while they were building a lattice out back of his house. The nail drove in all the way up to the cap, and once they found it, they rushed him to the emergency room…
…where doctors reportedly used a claw hammer from the guy’s tool kit to remove the nail. The man says doctors told him “that’s how it went in, so that’s how we’ll remove it.” Sounds a little simplified to me, but the good news is that the guy’s OK.
The takeaway from this: be freakin’ careful with nail guns, and for heaven’s sake, if you do have an accident — go to the hospital.
