Needle Breaks Off In Foot

Just the thought of stepping on a needle gives us the heebie jeebies. This 52 year-old man actually did it.

The pressure of stepping on the needle was great enough that the tip of the needle actually snapped off inside his foot and was hidden beneath the skin.

With the aid of these xrays, doctors were able to find its exact location and direction lodged inside the patient's foot, extracting it without any further damage. With a couple good, solid bandages and some time off his feet, the patient was back to normal - physically, that is. We have no idea what his mind is like now when he walks around in bare feet anymore.
