Man gets staple lodged in brain, survives

Earlier this month, a 27 year-old construction worker got a two and a half inch staple lodged into his head while on the job. He says he was standing up quickly and hit the safety on an air-powered staple gun a coworker was holding.

The staple went through both halves of his brain and miraculously missed every major blood vessel. The man, who was conscious following the accident, said it did not hurt and didn’t know anything happened until his coworkers started to panic. He was even able to fill out his own paperwork at the hospital.

Surgeons were able to remove the staple and he is expected to return to work in a couple of weeks.
