Gruesome X-Rays

Miss C wrote a gruesome yet interesting article on our pal mental_floss blog about some very disturbing X-rays. Like this one:

Gavin Docherty was hit by a nail gun in a workplace accident. His co-worker immediately drove him to the hospital, but they were stopped by Canada’s finest on the way for speeding. After seeing nails sticking out of Docherty’s forehead, the officer allowed them to continue to the hospital, but followed them so he could issue the driver a $167 ticket for not wearing a seatbelt!

There's an amazing art exhibit that consists of x-rays from terrorism victims; the exhibit is intended to draw attention to the violence suffered by victims of terrorism. Pieces include x-rays of watches embedded in victims' necks. The exhibit is called "Inside Terrorism: the X-Ray Project" and is currently touring various college campuses and medical schools in the US. You can see the collection online at

I never quite understood how these kind of accidents happen...

Are these nail guns like fully automatic rifles that spew nails? I just think that after the first one there would be a reaction.
