Man Survives Gardening Clipper Eye Impalement

Leroy Luetscher, an 86 year-old man in Arizona, fell onto his gardening shears while he was trimming plants in his yard. The clippers were lodged deep into his right eye, but he hardly panicked…

He simply put a t-shirt over his eye and requested that his girlfriend call an ambulance.

He later told reporters at a news conference:

“I couldn’t believe it. I just could not believe it. I sort of pulled on them it seemed real solid so I just left it alone.”

He has regained his health late last month after being treated at Tucson’s University Medical Center and did not suffer any vision loss besides some blurring shortly after the incident.

Unbelievable.
