X-ray: Amazing survival tale



A Californian man is lucky to be alive after an accident on a construction site.

Ron Hunt was drilling into a wall when the ladder he was standing on slipped.

His head was impaled on the drill bit.

Surgeons had to literally unscrew the tool from his skull.

Mr Hunt lost the sight in his right eye but still considers himself to be a very lucky man.
