Man shot himself with a harpoon - level 2
A Brazilian man accidentally shot himself in the head with a harpoon. He shot himself while he was cleaning it.
The six-inch-long sharp object was sent through his eye, into his head. It was extremely painful but he was still able to call for help. His neighbour saw him. She said it was terrifying. He was then quickly moved to a hospital where doctors removed the harpoon. It took them four hours.
This man was very lucky. His brain is OK but he can't see on his left eye.
Interesting words: accidentally (by mistake), harpoon (weapon for catching fish), remove (take away).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
