Last Thanksgiving, Andrew Linn of Cedar City, Utah crashed his car into a chain link fence. A two-inch diameter fence pole impaled him, going through his mouth and exiting his neck. He lived. Apparently, he also remained alert enough to attempt to text message someone while on the gurney. "Ex-Marine who survived impalement: ‘Just a lucky guy’" (MSNBC)
