    Default Spearfishing Accident

    OMG I can't even imagine!

    This Miami teen was struck in the forehead by the spear. It impaled itself into his forehead & skull.

    From the looks of the xray it may have just pierced the skin and wedge between skin and skull, but that still has to hurt and be scary as heck.

    LOL, the dangers of diving with a buddy...

    I recognize that cheap-azz JBL explorer slide ring from a mile away. Loaded spearguns out of the water too. Amateur hour!
