AMAZING X-RAYS: 3-Inch Nail In Chicago Man's Brain Latest Medical Wonder

The 3 and a half inch nail pulled from a Chicago man's head turned doctors at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Ill., into heroes -- and made for an amazing X-ray.

Dante Autullo thought he'd merely cut himself while building a shed. It wasn't until he was taken to the hospital the next day that he realized that he'd accidentally shot himself in the skull with a nail gun, according to the Associated Press.

"When they brought in the picture, I said to the doctor `Is this a joke? Did you get that out of the doctors joke file?'" the 32-year-old recalled. "The doctor said 'No man, that's in your head.'''

The X-ray revealed that the shot was just millimeters away from the section of the brain that controls the motor functions, according to Fox News.

We at HuffPost Weird News have been collecting amazing x-rays and medical photos. What's more amazing than the visual delight is the stories surrounding them.

In September, we laid our hands on an amazing shot, obtained by Brazilian Federal Police who stopped a man at the Congonhas airport in Sao Paulo. X-ray images show 72-capsules of cocaine in his tummy.

A month earlier, an 86-year-old man miraculously survived after a pruning shears was lodged in his eye socket.

Check out these and other amazing x-rays:

I wonder how many xrays have revealed sex toys, condoms, or tampons still lodged in an individual?

A Chinese man was shot 34 times in the head with a nail gun before his body was weighed down and dumped in Sydney's Georges River, police say.

They are appealing for public help to solve the murder of 27-year-old Chen (Anthony) Liu, describing the slaying as one of the most brutal they've seen.

Mr Liu's badly decomposed body was found in marshland in Sydney's south on November 1 last year by two children on a canoeing trip.

Police believe he was shot in the back of the head 12 days before the children made the discovery on the banks of the river in Oatley Bay, near Morshead Drive at Connells Point.

Detectives from Strike Force Renfree, set up to investigate the death, have released graphic X-ray images of Mr Liu's skull, which clearly shows the nails in his head.

Homicide Squad Superintendent Geoff Beresford said the murder had stunned investigators.

"In 36 years, I've never seen a murder of this nature," Supt Beresford told reporters in Sydney on Friday.

"It's a particularly brutal and vicious murder and hence the reason we are seeking information from the public."

He said 34 nails had entered "predominantly into the head area" at very close range, fired from an 85mm nail gun.

"We certainly believe the nail gun is responsible for the death, there's no doubt about that," he said.

Police have not recovered the murder weapon, but displayed what they believe to be a similar model of nail gun at a media conference.

"We believe the perpetrators had every intention of the body not being discovered," Supt Beresford

"Certainly there were efforts made to perhaps weigh it down if you like, and it was the force of nature, the tides, whereby the body has been discovered on the river bank."

Police are investigating associates of Mr Liu, but say there is nothing to suggest any links to a criminal group.

Mr Liu arrived in Melbourne on a student visa from China in early 2000 and moved to Sydney, where he married for a short time and separated, police said.

They are appealing for information from anyone who may have seen Mr Liu's blue 2005 Range Rover Sport 4WD in Rockdale or Connells Point around October 19 last year.

Detectives believe the 4WD could have been used to transfer Mr Liu's body to the marshland.
