Guy Shoots Himself in the Heart with a Nail Gun... AND SURVIVES!

WHAT STEVE IRWIN! This guy survived a nail in the heart


CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) -- A self-employed builder from New Jersey hopes to be out of the hospital by Saturday, days after he accidentally shot a nail into his heart.

Dennis Hennis of Vineland says he was working on a neighbor's roof when his nail gun jammed last Saturday.

Hennis tells WPVI-TV in Philadelphia he tried to clear it when it felt like someone poked him in the chest. A 3 1/2-inch nail hit the right side of his heart.

Hennis needed to be resuscitated after he went into cardiac arrest in an ambulance before he was airlifted to Cooper University Hospital in Camden.

A team of cardiac and trauma surgeons repaired the damage. Dr. Michael Rosenbloom tells the TV station that Hennis is very lucky to have survived the puncture wound to his heart.

Damn. I think a stingray barb is a bit bigger than a nail, but still impressive that he survived it.

Stingray barbs poison as well as the physical hit so Steve had no chance.

Stingrays inject venom although it's usually not fatal unless, as in Irwin's case, it's near the heart. Also, a stingray's stinger is about 8 inches long (16cm), and it's barbed. Added on to this was Irwin's location at sea, and the time it took to transport him to the nearest ER that had the trained personnel to handle his type of trauma. All considered, it's no wonder this dude survived while Irwin died.
