He got speared in the side of the neck and fell off of the spear.

He was alert and orientated when he left from what I heard other than the hole in his neck he was fine. It sounds like it missed anything vital.

I guess it's safe to say that the patient "really got the point" that was trying to be made. :)

The guy impaled just to the left of his trachea. The wound was about 1½” – 2” deep and 1 ½” wide and his carotid artery was at the edge of the wound about a ¼” towards the inside. The only thing that saved that was the fact that the hay fork was pointed and moved it out of the way.

He also had a major wreck a couple of years ago and he received a stoma. He no longer uses it and it is starting to heal over. Now he has 2 holes in his neck.
