Accidental Trepanation

A construction worker in Truckee, California fell from a ladder face first onto an 18-inch-long, 1.5-inch diameter chip auger drill bit. The bit went into his eye, pushed his brain aside, and travelled through his skull and out the back. Amazingly, he lost only the eye, not his life. (He should join ITAG!) According to CNN, the "doctors essentially unscrewed the bit to remove it." Link Discuss
