(iWIDK By Brittany Hahn) – This sort of miraculous survival has only happened on three other occasions.
A 19-year-old Argentina carpenter was accidentally struck through the heart with a nail by a coworker while working at a wooden pallet factory in Buenos Aires.
The nail struck this man through the chest via electric nail gun.
Doctors had to be careful when removing the nail, since if it were pushed or pulled the wrong way, the man could have died.
According to the Daily Mail, the hospital’s executive director, Arnaldo Medina, said that only three people have survived this injury in the world, and this was the first time this type of surgery has been performed in Argentina.
He’s lucky the nail was shot into his heart, and not into his coffin.
