Sheldon Mpofu, 37, was turning soil when he swung the massive tool but hit his washing line on the way down.

The pick-axe swung back and the pointed end hit him in the middle of the head, missing his brain and entering a sinus - an empty space in the skull.

Despite his injury he still took a bus to hospital where doctors were stunned the pickaxe had not killed him.

Has health and safety and pure old common sense not hit West Yorkshire yet?

You do not have to be a lumberjack to know that swinging a massive tool (pick axes) near the washing lines do not go well together!

Sorry, but there is only one massive tool here and thats HIM.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Mistakes do happen, he's only human after all. I'm glad he's ok.
