"In a freak accident, 86-year-old gardener Leroy Luetscher fell face-first onto a pair of pruning shears outside his Phoenix, AZ home in July 2012. And while medical staff were no doubt relieved to discover that Luetscher had not fallen on the garden tool's blades, an X-ray revealed the true extent of the damage: the handle had passed through the man's eye socket, penetrating all the way down to his neck, where it rested on his carotid artery.
During surgery, doctors made incisions beneath Luetscher's right upper lip and in his sinus wall and loosened the handle of the shears with their fingers. Unbelievably, they were able to both prevent further injury and save Luetscher's eye. Four weeks later, he was only suffering minor effects from the accident."
Ain't that some shit?
