NYDN Bruno Barcellos de Souza Coutinho, 34, miraculously survived accidentally  shooting a 12-inch spear into his face.The miserable harpoon mishap occurred Sunday night while the fisherman was  cleaning his spear gun in Petrópolis, a city in the Brazil state of Rio de  Janeiro.The spear hit the corner of his left eye, broke through his skull, traveled  six inches into his head and lodged itself deep into his brain for more  than 10 hours, reported Portuguese language news site O Correio News.Somehow he did not suffer brain damage and arrived at Hospital Santa Teresa  entirely lucid, after his aunt contacted the local fire department.

So you have a 12 inch spear through your eye, and you choose to sleep it off? I guess a harpoon through your head is a minor injury, so I understand why he had to be convinced to get help. I have a new outlook on Brazilian fisherman, they are clearly badass. If this is not a big deal, imagine the shit that goes on when he is actually fishing.
