Brazilian fisherman Bruno Barcellos de Souza Coutinho was cleaning his fishing spear when the gun discharged sent a foot-long weapon into his EYE! The small spear missed puncturing his brain and vital arteries by only millimeters.

The kicker is that Bruno didn’t think he needed to go to the hospital at first. He relaxed at home before a family member made him seek medical attention.

He underwent emergency surgery and lost his left eye.
