Man feels fine after being shot in head by nailgun

Shawnee_George Chandler said he feels fine, even though a nailgun fired a 2.5 inch nail into the top of his head on Friday. Chandler and a friend were doing a project in a backyard when the nailgun hose became tangled, causing the tool to fire one nail.

Chandler said Monday he told his friend he didn't know where the nail went, but he felt a sting on the top of his head.

They discovered that the nail was driven deep into Chandler's head, so they called an ambulance and he was rushed to a hospital.

Chandler said a doctor used a common claw hammer to remove the nail.

He said he feels "very lucky, very, very lucky" to have escaped serious injury.
