How do you not know you have a nail in your head?!
The 3 and a half inch nail pulled from a Chicago man’s head turned doctors at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Ill., into heroes — and made for an amazing X-ray. Dante Autullo thought he’d merely cut himself while building a shed. It wasn’t until he was taken to the hospital the next day that he realized that he’d accidentally shot himself in the skull with a nail gun, according to the Associated Press.
“When they brought in the picture, I said to the doctor `Is this a joke? Did you get that out of the doctors joke file?'” the 32-year-old recalled. “The doctor said ‘No man, that’s in your head.”’
The X-ray revealed that the shot was just millimeters away from the section of the brain that controls the motor functions.
We don’t know if he’s dumb, tough, lucky or a combination or all of those. He had a whole damn nail in his head for a a whole day! Good Lord.
