He got six nails driven into his head. As Archie Bunker would say, "what in the hell's lucky about that?"

Things like this are amazing!! Several years ago, in the neighboring area of Minnesota a carpenter was "nailed" when he dropped his gun, and didn't realize he was shot until he went to take off his hat later in the day........it is good to see these folks alive to tell about it.

I've had one go into my leg before...that was plenty for me. I agree with Archie Bunker on this one!

The accident could have been prevented or minimized by requiring commercial air nailers to use the same interlocks required on homeowner versions. With the commercial gun, you hold the trigger down, bounce it against the surface and it nails every time. The more restrictive ones require both a bump and a trigger pull for each nail. Industry would fight the change tooth and nail because it would slow production.
Note: I'm not saying if its good or bad, only that it would have changed this accident.

Heard this on the news last night (Best Damn Sports Show) and they said the guy had told the ems that he thought someone did this to him, while he was out of it!. Still unlucky, no matter what.

This one could have been prevented if he had not fallen off the roof onto the framer.
