Holy shizz! This guy is super lucky!
Well, other than originally being shot in the head with a nail gun. But let's face it, if you have to be shot in the head with a nail gun, this is probably the best series of outcomes you could have from it!
Dante Autullo was working on a shed when he thought he cut his head with a nail gun (how do you not hear a nail gun go off?), and straight up thought the doctors were joking when they told him a 3 1/4-inch nail was lodged in the middle of his brain.
The nail was millimeters away from the motor-control location in his brain.
He actually thought the nail just soared past his head, as there wasn't really an indication that it went in. He thought the gun just bumped up against his noggin, which would feel like getting punched in the head — which is what he said it felt like.
Luckily, they removed the nail with very little issue, and the piece of skull with it. He is moving normally and remembers everything!
What a scary thing! This is why you wear protection and probably shouldn't use a nail gun around your head!
