I have been failing in my attempts to document the harms of nail guns in human bodies. Hard as Nails No 9 was way back in 2008, and started in 2004. Here is the latest case. Man did not notice nail in brain.
Dante Autullo, 34, was in his workshop when a nail gun recoiled near his head.
But he had no idea the nail had entered his brain until the next day, when he began feeling nauseous.
Ms Glaenzer said she had no idea the nail had entered his skull when she cleaned a cut on his forehead.
Gail Glaenzer said he jokingly told her to get the TV cameras: “I’m one of those medical miracles”
She convinced him to go to the hospital after he felt nauseous for much of Wednesday.
Mr Autullo thought that the nail gun had simply hit his forehead, but realised later that when the gun came in contact with his head, the sensor recognised a flat surface and fired.
