A construction worker defied the odds by surviving a particularly nasty nail gun accident.
Jeff Luptak stunned doctors by being more concerned about saving his hat then the 3 inch nail protruding from his skull.

After being flown 500 miles to St. Paul's hospital in Minnesota brain surgeons were able to successfully remove the nail from his skull.
"Shooting a three inch nail into your skull, sounds like a painful experience, but when construction worker Jeff Luptak accidentally did exactly this, he surprisingly reported that he 'didn't feel any pain."
