Man left with huge metal spear through his head after fishing trip goes wrong

If the spear had pierced the man just millimetres higher, the wound could’ve easily proved fatal.

The picture of the painful piercing has since gone viral after it was posted on social media on Wednesday.

Thousands of people have shared the photo and commented out of sheer amazement that the man managed to survive.

One woman wrote: ‘This is why I used to be so scared of spear fishing!’

Another said: ‘Oh my goodness, that is not how you want to get both ears pierced.’

The incident is believed to have taken place while on a diving trip off the coast of the Bahamas.
