A man in Kansas fell from his ladder while holding a nail gun.  He had been renovating a house when he slipped off the ladder, holding the nail gun. Unfortunately, his hand slipped and he pulled the trigger while he was falling, shooting a gun into this head. He was able to walk to the site of a traffic accident to request help from a police officer. The man was in critical condition.

The nail gun part of this accident is especially tragic, but we are so glad it sounds like he will be ok.

In cases like this, it is a good reminder to use your ladder safely. You will want to take precautions, especially when you are using power tools.
