Hey dude, you got something on your face. No the other side. Yeah, right there, that hunk of a tree that’s harpooned in your lip. YOUCH!!! This bro ski instructor got impaled by a tree branch but he was super chill about it.
We take you to Jackson Hole, Wyoming where Natty Hagood was carving up the pow-pow when KA-POW-POW!!! The 29-year-old began to ski down a path through the forest when he had his fearsome injury after getting skewered by a tree branch.
“I thought maybe my chinstrap got pushed up into my face, so I tried to brush it off and that’s when I felt the stick,” he told the Idaho State Journal. “So, I shook left to right and saw the stick moving in my peripherals. I reached out and grabbed it and wiggled it before realizing it was pretty far in there.”
Natty had a fucking 18-inch long tree branch gouged in his lip that went in his mouth and then was sticking out of his face.
Instead of panicking, Natty had the chillest response.
“Holy crap, I just got impaled. And then I yelled over to Pete, ‘Hey look I got a new piercing.’”
Call him Natty lighthearted.
The injury happened so quickly that apparently Natty experienced zero pain from being impaled in the face at first.
Natty took the huge branch and broke off about a foot of the biggest splinter ever before being taken to the hospital for tree-tment.
Natty seems like the most awesome ski instructor anyone could ever ask for. In fact, his ski students now lovingly call him “Lipstick.”
As you can see, the hospital gave Natty some “medicine” to ease the pain.
Thankfully, doctors patched Natty up and he is on the mend, but it will be awhile before he is whistling or slurping up ramen noodles.
“When I laugh, I have to hold the left side of my face down at this weird angle that makes me look like this crotchety old man,” Natty told the newspaper. “And I drool more than I used to.”
Natty set up a GoFundMe to pay for his scary splinter injury.
Today I cut it a little too close to a tree while skiing. The surgery to remove the stick will easily cost me over a thousand dollars. My deductible is 1250. This was totally unplanned and sucks so if y’all would be so kind as to chip in for my medical expenses that would be sooo cool. Guess I should reconsider the lip piercing trend.
Natty, stay away from the trees for fuck’s sake and try not to be a human skewer anytime soon.
