Nick Thompson is lucky to be alive. In case you missed it, the construction worker was building a closet when the nail he shot out of his nail gun ricocheted and came right back at his face.
The nail made it two inches into Thompson’s face right above his eye. “I didn’t even know I had a nail in my eye until we got to the hospital and then sitting in the chair, I was like ‘Take a picture. Take a picture,’ Thompson remembers. “I still didn’t think there was a nail in my eye at all.”
He was rushed into surgery were doctors were able to remove the nail. “One more millimeter and it was a lobotomy,” Thompson explains. “One more millimeter and it was poke my eye out. One more millimeter this way and I was dead. There are so many things that could’ve gone wrong. I don’t know how everything went right.”
