Have You Seen: Amazing X-Ray of Garden Shear Accident [PHOTO]
SHEARS: Earlier this month, while 86-year-old Leroy Luetscher of Green Valley, Arizona was using a small pair of gardening shears to prune some bushes, they slipped out of his hand landing on the ground with the handles pointing up. When Leroy reached down to pick them up, he lost his balance and fell face-first … right onto the shears. One of the handles went through his eye socket right behind his nose and buried itself down his throat …
Surgeons from the University Medical Center in Tucson were not only able to successfully remove the shears, but completely rebuild his eye area, and save his vision. They say he was extremely lucky.
I beg to differ. Lucky is hitting the Power Ball, NOT having your eye socket reconstructed because you have pruning shears sticking out of your face!!!
