Nail in the Heart – level 3

23-08-2017 15:00

A man named Doug from Wisconsin, USA was nailing with a nail gun when he accidentally dropped it, and it shot him on its own. Doug could not see anything, but he felt a nail moving with his heart, as it was embedded inside it.

Luckily, he did not attempt to pull the nail out, which could have been fatal. Instead, he drove himself to hospital to have it removed. Now, he is fine.

Difficult words: embedded (inserted), fatal (deadly).
