    Too bad his name isn't Mike.



    "I have an 18 inch drill bit in Mike Hunt, get in here STAT!"







    Quote:

    "It's just going to be one of those stories," Ben Hunt said. "He'll joke around with his glass eye and pop it out."



    Wow. That's about all I can say.



    WOW.

    Do you really need it explained?? And yes it is incredible that he survived, one lucky inept diy-er.

    I don't think that's a joke if it's on CNN.com.

    Sorry. Point taken though.



    My question: if they "unscrewed it" to get it out, how in God's name did they prevent the guy from bleeding to death? He's got a tunnel that's been bored through his skull. You'd think the second they start to pull it out - gusher city.



    *cringe* freaks me out just thinking about it. I know I coudn't laugh it off, that's for sure. I'd be thankful but still pretty messed up psychologically.

    Yea I'm sure they talked that one over. Consider that 1/3 of the blood from your heart goes to you head.

    "I ran my hands up the drill bit, up to my eye, and put my other hand in the back of my head and felt it coming through the back of my head," he said. "And that's where pretty much the shock set in."



    I'll say.

    So... can any pre-med people (or Doctors) in here explain how this guy didn't leave all his blood on the operating room table? I'm seriously baffled by this.
