This is one of those stories that makes you go, "ohmygodohmygodohmygodohmygod" while hoping around with both hands over your eyes after you hear it.
A guy in Wales went fishing with his friends. While fishing, his line got stuck on something in the water so he gave it a strong pull. He remembers getting hit in the face and falling down. After putting his hands to his face and seeing them covered in blood, he assumed that he had gotten cut by something that flew into his face when he pulled on the line. Unfortunately this wasn't the case.
What had actually happened was that the lead sinker from his fishing line had gone into his eye socket and shattered his cheekbone. See the x-ray to the left.
" . . . my mates ran over to me and they could see the tip of the weight sticking out of my eye socket".
Doctors were able to remove the sinker and rebuild his cheekbone with a metal plate. He's doing fine now, and even carries the weight around as a good-luck charm.
