Many uses for Vise-grips
Man shot with arrow in head, feels great after it's removed.
That's the headline from Leno's Headlines last night.
Shot by an ex-roommate with a cross-bow, the arrow went in below his
skull and to the left of his spine, and came out, or got close, to his
forehead above his left eye. But seems to have damaged nothing
important. Doctors cut off the arrowhead, and used sterilized
Vise-grips to pull the aluminum shaft out from the other direction.
(They had also cut off the feathers and the shaft about 2 inches from
skin, so they could lay him on the operating table.)
Here is another version of the same story by the same reporter,
Brigitte Greenberg of the AP.
You can use the cursor and mouse to read the whole story. It doesn't
mention the Vise-grips, and the story is in a substantially different
order. . Maybe it was edited by The Hour in Norwalk, Connecticut,
but I didn't think they would make so many changes. .
