*If you never subscribed to the belief that if it ain’t your time to die, no matter what happens, you just ain’t gonna go — well, Doug Bergeson of Wisconsin has proof that should leave no doubt.
Bergeson had been working on framing in a fireplace at his home near Peshtigo in northeast Wisconsin, when his nail gun accidentally fired, and a nail ricocheted off a piece of wood and went straight into his chest.
Now that right there could’ve spelled the end, but it was obviously NOT time for the man to go.
If doesn’t even sound like he freaked out at all. Instead, he reportedly walked calmly to his truck (arguably in shock), got in and drove himself to the hospital. He then parked his pickup truck in the lot and walked into the emergency room.
I can only imagine other people in the waiting room, seeing him, mouths agape, stepping out of the way to allow him access to the front of the line.
“Please, you go ahead sir. I can wait.”
