DailyMail A man has been left with a large metal spear piercing through both sides of his face after a horrific incident while on a spearfishing trip in North America. A photo of the man sitting in hospital with the long rod poking out just near his ear has gone viral online, since being posted to social media on Wednesday. Incredibly lucky to have survived the freak incident, the man grimaces in pain as he seemingly waits to undergo surgery with blood covering his cheeks and chin. Should the spear have pierced the man just millimetres higher, the wound could’ve easily proved fatal. Luckily it appears the man has come through surgery, with a post surgery photo shared by a friend showing him offering a smile and peace sign. The amazing photo has proved incredibly popular since being posted to social media, receiving thousands of shares and likes.
This photo is going viral across all forms of social media, it shows a man who got his head impaled by a spear during a freak spearfishing accident in the Bahamas, an injury which he miraculously survived. Despite the fact that the spear went straight through the man’s head, and made his face look like a bacon wrapped scallop on a toothpick, the spear somehow was millimeters away from hitting any viral organs that would have instantly proven fatal. It’s incredible that this man survived this accident, and he even earned a new nickname, Spike. If you ever needed any futher confirmation that you should never go spearfishing, other than the fact that the flailing fish make you extremely vulnerable to shark attacks as we saw in this GoPro video, remember this picture and think that your face could end up skewered on a spear.
