Nail Head

According to an Associated Press report, Isidro Mejia, 39, was atop an unfinished home when he fell from the roof onto a co-worker who was using the nail gun. The two men tried to grab each to keep from falling, but both tumbled to the ground. At some point, the nail gun discharged and drove the nails into Mejia's head.

Mejia is now walking with minimal assistance and speaks somewhat slowly because his brain's speech center was affected, but his progress has been "remarkable," his doctor says. With rehabilitation therapy, he should fully recover.
