Wow lucky break, except for his eye ! And its a lousy harpoon then, a fish can wriggle of that, there is no barb! (Lucky for him too)

When I had a spear gun years ago they 'always' had barbs on the spear so the fish cant get off the line!!

The lack of brain trauma indicates a lack of brain matter. A logical answer to cleaning a loaded speargun.

reminds of a quote by Noel Coward went something like this: Blew his brains out did you say? he must have been a rather good shot.
