A New Zealand truck driver, Steven McCormack, found himself in painful predicament after he fell onto the fitting of a compressed air hose, which pierced his right buttock and started forcing air into his body.
At 100 pounds a square inch.
"I felt the air rush into my body and I felt like it was going to explode from my foot. I was blowing up like a football. I had no choice but just to lay there, blowing up like a balloon."
Thankfully, his coworkers heard him yelling and came over to help. He was then rushed to the hospital and treated for terrible swelling and fluid in one lung.
He’s lucky to be alive!
