Holy shizz! What a lucky dude!
Watch as doctors SAVED this man’s eye after it was impaled by a pair of sheers. Truly incredible.
A little gross too. Don’t watch if you’re squeamish!

Doctors had never seen a case quite like it: An 86-year-old man showed up at the hospital with the handle of a pair of pruning shears stuck in his eye socket.
Amazingly, the man made it through this accident with his vision almost intact. His medical team, including surgeons who also treated Rep. Gabrielle Giffords after she was shot in the head in January, removed the shears and reconstructed the eye socket.
Leroy Luetscher of Green Valley, Arizona, had been working in his yard July 30 when the accident happened. He thinks he may have dropped a pair of pruning shears and fallen face-first onto the handle when he went to retrieve them. The handle drove into his eye socket and down into his neck.
“There was just blood all over,” Arpy Williams, Luetscher’s girlfriend, said Tuesday, according to CNN affiliate KOLD. “I saw this instrument in his face, and I just said, ‘Leroy, honey, what have you done?’ “
I’m not squeamish. I love this stuff.
