A Brazilian man who came to a hospital with a spear stuck in his head after a diving accident says he is done with underwater fishing.
Three days after doctors surgically removed a 6-inch spear from his brain, Emerson de Oliveira Abreu said he would never do any more spear fishing, again!
Abreu said that he felt "a sharp pain" after his shot apparently ricocheted off a rock and entered his head above his left eye.
He said the pain was unbearable every time he touched the spear or when the ambulance hit bumps in the road on the way to the hospital.
The spear fisherman is in stable condition and expected to go home in 1 to 2 weeks.
Boy, we think hooking a thumb is a bad day! I can't even imagine how that felt. I find it hard to believe he shot himself in the head! I am glad he will be alright though! Adds a new twist to fishing safety!
So until next time boat safely! Keep your hooks wet, and your line tight! See ya out there!
