Man Shot a Dozen Nails Into His Head, Survived
From Times Wire Reports
April 22, 2006


A man who went to a hospital complaining of a headache was found to have 12 nails embedded in his skull from a suicide attempt with a nail gun, doctors say.

Surgeons in Portland removed the nails with needle-nosed pliers and a drill, and the man survived, according to a report on the medical oddity in the current issue of the Journal of Neurosurgery.

The unidentified 33-year-old man reportedly was suicidal and high on methamphetamine when he fired the nails ? up to 2 inches in length ? into his head one by one last year.
