What's that in my eye?
« on: August 23, 2012, 03:12:47 PM »
Hi
Just thought I would share this.
I am not one of these safety nannies ? I?m really not, far from it.

One of these quick release air hose connectors wasn?t working correctly the guy disconnected the air tool he was using and then whilst looking down the end poked at it with a small screw driver. Yep you guessed it something shot out and hit him just underneath his eye, it penetrated 18mm  into his eye socket. The bit was removed surgically.

The good news is there was no damage to the eye ? none whatsoever just a couple of stitches underneath his eye. He was extremely lucky.

Be careful.
 :cheers:

Kind of like looking down the barrel of a loaded gun!  Glad the guy wasn't hurt worse....it could have been far worse. Such reminders are good for all of us so thanks for posting it
