Neurosurgeons at Chmelnytskyi Regional Hospital in Western Ukraine managed to save the lives of Oleksandr, 64, after his suicide attempt by beating two nails in the head
In the shed he grabbed a six-inch (2.3-inch) metal nail and rammed it into his sleep.
When the first nail didn't kill him, Oleksandr grabbed a second and rammed it in his forehead, local media reported.
It is clear that he became unconscious at this point and was lying on the floor in the shed by his family an hour later.
The shocked family members saw the nails sticking out of Oleksandr & # 39; s head and rushed him to the hospital with their car.

Doctors managed to remove both nails from Oleksandr & # 39; s head in a complex operation and save his life.
& # 39; The patient was admitted to the intensive care unit in a critical state, & # 39; Neurosurgeon Serhii Kalynovsky told local media at the Chmelnytskyi regional hospital.
& # 39; He was unconscious with metal objects sticking out of his head.
& # 39; The objects ended up in the brain but did not damage any of their vital structures.

Medici said the large amount of alcohol that Oleksandr consumed served as an anesthetic and that he most likely felt no pain during his suicide attempt.
& # 39; The patient said he wanted to commit suicide and hit two nails in the head & # 39 ;, confirmed Vasyl Levytsky, head of the hospital's neurosurgical department.
& # 39; One nail pierced his temple and went an inch into the brain. Another nail pierced his forehead bone and went two inches into his brain.
& # 39; If this second nail had gone a millimeter further, the man would have died immediately.
Vasyl Levytsky, head of the neurosurgery department at Chmelnytskyi Regional Hospital, said: & # 39; If this second nail had gone a millimeter further, the man would have died immediately & # 39;
& # 39; Fortunately for him, no vital or impotent brain structures have been damaged.
& # 39; He can talk and walk. & # 39;
According to Oleksandr, he feels good after the operation and is looking forward to going home again.
He said to the local media: & I want to go home. I have a lot of work to do there. & # 39;
Oleksandr receives guidance after being released from the hospital, reports reported.
