According to the Southtown Star, a 32-year-old Illinois man is recovering at a hospital after having surgery to remove a 3.5-inch nail he unknowingly shot into his brain with a nail gun Tuesday while working on a project in his garage.

The man's fiancee took him to a hospital a day later after the man started feeling nauseous. The operation to remove the nail took approximately four hours, according to the Southtown Star report.
