Re: Arrow thru the head

Spear, or arrow? Wonder what the rubber thing next to his head is?

Wow! Looking at the title, I thought this would be some funny play with words... That's crazy, hope they got it out alright.

... The metal shaft which was just inches away from causing more serious injuries or even death was removed and the man was released from a hospital Wednesday...
... He was very lucky, as the harpoon crossed the soft part of the mouth, did not reach any bone or more sensitive part, such as the brain. It could have been fatal.

Ha! I like how the writer didn't think we could make the leap that this was just inches from being worse.

That picture is gruesome.

Probably part of his wetsuit hood. The first responders would have cut it off of him, leaving that piece so as not to disturb the shaft of the spear.

Re: Arrow thru the head

Judging by the background of the pboto, the guy is in a hospital bed and surrounded,by medical equipment. The rubber tubing is air or oxygen fitted to his nose......

Have to rename him LUCKY!

Re: Arrow thru the head

The shaft is the only thing sealing the blood vessels. Pulling it out would release a torrent of blood. Good luck .

Re: Arrow thru the head

Being SS, Maybe they should have left it in as a new piercing. Just kidding of course. Glad to see he survived the incident!

Someone will probably see this, and that it was survivable, and want one!

Re: Arrow thru the head

When I was an intern in Philadelphia some years ago we had a patient brought in with a Javelin through her head (she was wandering around during track and field practice). It was a wooden javelin so the EMT guys cut it off on both sides of her head so she could fit in the ambulance. Then we did a CT to confirm that it hadn't gone through any major vessels (carotid, jugular) and then it was pulled out. She did fine...just like this guy
