Man Has Missing Nail Removed From His Scrotum

Any handyman knows that misplacing tools and supplies is just part of the job. It’s almost impossible to keep track of everything. But a factory worker in Ancona had to go to the hospital after accidentally misplacing a nail at high speed into his ballsack. The unnamed laborer was operating a pneumatic nail gun on the job site when an errant trigger pull blasted a 3/4″ nail right into his scrotum. He immediately screamed in pain and was taken to the hospital, but doctors there couldn’t locate the entry point.
