A man in Petropolis, Brazil, accidentally shot himself through the head with a harpoon. As he was cleaning his fishing gear, Bruno Barcellos de Souza Coutinho was impaled by a spear that went 15 centimeters into his skull.
However, he did not seek medical attention until the next day when a relative encouraged him to go to hospital. He arrived for treatment completely lucid and underwent emergency surgery.
De Souza Coutinho lost his eye but incredibly avoided suffering any brain damage.
