Maybe lucky to be alive but i doubt he's the luckiest man alive...

According to the article his medical bills is somewhere between $80,000.00 to $100,000.00, and due to his lack of health insurance, Lawler is going to paying for his accident for quite sometime.

OK, I guess I just don't buy the guy's story. It requires me to believe that the nailgun misfired, and a nail of that size impacted the roof of his mouth with sufficienf force to drive it that deep into his noggin. The impact would've no doubt given his head a jolt, caused instantaneous pain, and a fair amount of bleeding. And he didn't put two and two together to think maybe the sudden toothache might be related to the nailgun misfire? Honestly, if anything unusual ever happens with a piece of equipment and you suddenly have a sharp pain somewhere, don't you naturally assume the two might be related?

I'd say this is an honorable mention for a Darwin Award.
