Dude Treats Self-Inflicted Gunshot Wound to Head with Neosporin

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Alaska residents are known to be very self-reliant, but one man took that to the extreme by waiting five days to seek medical attention for a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Instead of going to the hospital, an Anchor Point man treated his `serious but not life-threatening` wound with Neosporin and other supplies he had on hand."

UPI

The patient`s name wasn`t released by the hospital, but I wouldn`t be surprised if his last name was Palin.

The man accidentally shot himself in the head while negligently handling a rifle.

Duct tape will repair almost any mechanical problem, and Neosporin will heal almost any bruise, cut or abrasion, but I don`t think the instructions include: Gently apply to the gaping gunshot hole in your head.

I`d venture to guess that this dude`s brains were scrambled before his unfortunate accident, and now he is going to need a lot more than Neosporin to get by in the world.
