Hugo Pereira da Silva had a really bad day.
The 27-year-old man was fishing with a friend when the spear pierced the side of his head.
This horrific accident occurred at the Rio Paranaiba dam in Araguari Brazil. The water was said to be very murky, leading to the terrible accident. This guy’s friend wasn’t as careful with his target as he could have been, and the consequences were borderline horrific.
These two gentlemen might still be in hot water. Spearfishing from November through February is illegal. This man was indeed lucky though as a slight deviation from the spear’s path could have hit his brain. Such a shot would certainly have been lethal.
