The video above isn’t NSFW per se, but it is pretty sickening to watch how quickly the player screeches to a halt after being stabbed by the three-to-four inch long splinter. Luckily, the wood didn’t hit any major organs, there was no bleeding, and after a night in the hospital the girl was able to leave.
