Teen Impaled By Pliers After Freak Accident (PHOTOS)
They say, “don’t run with scissors.” It’s fantastic advice. Similarly, you must now be warned not to shovel snow with pliers. That’s right. A teen was impaled by pliers after a freak accident!
It started by simply doing some common winter chores. Then, it ended with a trip to the hospital. Of course, there’s photos and video to show it all.
Teen Impaled By Pliers After Freak Accident
According to TMZ, 15-year old Joey Zeman was shoveling snow outside his family’s house in WaKeeney, Kansas when he slipped and fell. It’s common, it happens all the time in the slippery icy snow. However, when he fell he realized the pliers he had in his pouch were now literally inside of him.
According to KWCH, he tried pulling the pliers out several times, but when he couldn’t he knew he had to immediately get to an ER. This is frightening! Yet, totally makes sense. If you fall and you have something like pliers in your pockets, they’re going to have to go somewhere! You’re not going to bounce off of it. If the sharp end is facing up, it’s going in you. Yikes.
According to his mom, the pliers were stuck firmly into a bone! Ahh! It hurts to think about. However, that explains why he couldn’t simply pull them out. The good news? Everything ended up okay and he is recovering. Going forward, he’s not going to carry pliers around on his person. Probably the right decision. I would never want to see any pliers…or tools…again.
This situation reminds me of a scene from The League on FX. Andre falls onto their Fantasy League Trophy and it goes inside of him. Which causes Taco (played by Jon LaJoie) to make a song about it. I present, “I’m Inside Me.”
Joey’s mom, Alicia Zeman, shared the pictures on her Facebook account. Some of them can be pretty graphic! Know that ahead. Check out the photos below!
