CHICAGO, Illinois – Dante Autullo was in his workshop when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a nail gun. The Bbc reports that Mr Autullo’s nail gun recoiled when it was close to his head letting a 3.25in nail enter his skull.
He felt nothing until the following morning when nausea and a cut on the forehead prompted Autullo and his fiancee Gail Glanzer to head to the Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Illinois. There he found out that the nail had come millimeters “of the ares used for motor function.”
The man underwent surgery to have the nail removed and he now feels good and talking normal. Mr Autullo thought that the nail hadn’t hit his forehead “but realised later that when the gun came in contact with his head, the sensor recognised a flat surface and fired.”
