Rakow said as soon as it hit him he knew he was in trouble. He thought to himself, man I gotta get some place and get help, fast. Instead of calling 911, he opted to have his wife Carmen drive him to Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis. Dr. Louis Louis, a heart surgeon, said that the nail actually entered Rakows heart twice, but because of the design of the nail and a little bit of luck he was able to be saved. “The sternum acted like a 2×4 in that it caught the nail and prevented the nail from going any deeper,” Louis said. The nail was stopped just two millimeters from the coronary artery.

Harris, the co-host of Studio 10 on Australian television, pointed the business end of a nail gun the wrong way, i.e. at her own face. Studio 10 is a popular morning talk show that airs on Australias Network Ten from 8:30 to 11:00 am on weekdays.
