Man survives shooting himself in heart with nail gun

Recommended Posts


Hospital heart surgeon Dr. Louis Louis said that the nail actually into Rakow's heart twice, but the patient was saved by the design of the nail and a little bit of luck.


"The sternum acted like a 2x4 in that it caught the nail and prevented the nail from going any deeper," Louis said, adding that the nail stopped just two millimeters short of the coronary artery, the puncturing of which would have likely killed Rakow on the spot.

Some stories are never false..

Although it is an old fact, it is not a lie.


An entreaty for prayers on behalf of a 22-month-old boy in critical condition after accidentally shooting himself in the chest with a nail gun first hit our inbox in August 2010, spread in large part by Facebook and Twitter postings. The appeal took on new life in August 2011 when it once again spread through Facebook postings and showed up yet again in August 2016:

Posting for a friend of a friend -Janet James …her 22 month old son shot himself in the chest with a brad nailer, it went in his heart, he is in critical condition not doing good, neither is mom. please start a prayer chain. 

** Just as Nail Gun can be very useful, it can also be very dangerous. So you have to be very careful in using it. **
