Man Shoots Nail Through His Heart

Nail in the heartThere's a story in the news of a man who accidentally shot a four-inch nail into his heart, and he survived.

Of all the weekends for this story to break. It's like one-upmanship on Jesus. "What's that, Jesus, you got nails through the palms, died and was resurrected three days later? Well, I got a nail in the heart and I didn't even take a day off."

Dennis Hennis (that's his real name, so a nail in the heart isn't his only issue) was trying to clear a jammed nail gun when he fired it into his chest, puncturing the right side of his heart. No newspapers have given him any credit though, he did unblock that nail gun.

He suffered a cardiac attest in the ambulance and the CPR pushed the nail further in. Ouch. Why didn't they use a defibrillator? They wouldn't even need the pads, just jump leads on the nail.

His surgeon, Dr Michael Rosenbloom said, "He's very lucky. I told him he should go play the lottery."

He's just had serious surgery and a near fatal cardiac episode and his doctor said he should give himself the chance of a really big shock. Charming.
