Man Survives Nail In The Eye
A landscaper’s story makes it into a medical journal.
FOX News Radio’s Lisa Brady has the story:
He was using a weed-whacker when he accidentally hit a nail and that three inch nail flew right into his eye. Missing the globe of the eye… But lodging against key arteries.
Like a finger in the dam, say doctors who treated the landscaper two years ago Boston, writing in Thursday’s New England Journal of Medicine, how three surgeons were used. One to pull out the nail, two on standby, in case of major bleeding.
Instead, The 27-year-old left Massachusetts General with a tetanus shot and antibiotics. His vision returning to normal within weeks. Escaping major damage by just one millimeter.
The doctors urging everyone to wear goggles, even for gardening power tools.
