I know there was a previous "freak accidents" thread, but Im taking about recent! Well today would be my first real accident/ Emergency room worthy incident. I was welding at school (im working on the rose float from my school ) and had just lifted my mask up to check out my weld. Right next to me a guy was hitting his weld (removing some black stuff called "slag") when a piece of the slag flew into my eye. It was pretty hot after being molten metal a few seconds earlier. In short, I drove myself to the ER cause my friend sucked (i mean sucked!) at driving and didnt like taking the highway. Heres a pic, the doctor put some UV liquid in to see into my eye. The green stuff is where the wound is at. It turns out the piece of metal cut up some of my Cornia. I can still see perfectly, but it burns like a bitch. I got some X-rays to see if any metal was still stuck inside. Lucky there wasnt any. I got some antibiotic drops (which didnt take away the pain) and after that spent the next 2 hours driving home on the street, a bit drowsy and with a EXTREMELY irritated eye. I'll have to wait till tuesday to go to the eye doctor, because monday is a holiday I call it a freak accident because I HAD TO pull up my mask just as someone was hitting his weld and it just so happens that the metal went straight for my eye. I had it coming Sooo any recent freak accidents???
