Don’t Run With Scissors (Or Forks)

It’s real. Happened July 11th in Minneapolis at a Chinese buffet restaurant. He was climbing into the booth and fell while holding his fork in his hand. When the waiter picked him up from under the table the fork was through his nose. There was only a little blood because the fork tines missed all of the cartilage in his nose (Thank God). The one picture is from the ER and the other picture is two days later at home. The ER doctor and ENT doctor we saw the following day said that they had never seen this before and that we were pretty lucky that the fork went up and out through his nose. We saved the fork and this picture for him to see when he gets older. We emailed the pics to our family, coworkers and friends and now they are all over the internet. Live and learn I guess.

Poor little fella, I’m glad he is alright.

I left the photos as thumbnails for those of you that may not be able to stomach seeing a fork through a little boys nose. It’s not bloody or anything, but it is a bit disturbing.

  1. This is fake, and here are my reasons:

    chopped, lack of shadow from direct flash

    also if you look at the specular highlights on the metal frame on the wall, and then compare to the fork..
