A man found himself pinned to the floor after accidently tripping and firing a five inch nail into his hand recently.

The DIY enthusiast was alone in his house in Shropshire when the accident happened which left him stranded for 3 hours as he was unable to reach a phone and didn’t have his mobile on him. He was rescued when his partner came home from work at 11pm and found him and called the emergency services.

Firefighters ended up removing part of the floorboards to release him before he was able to be taken to hospital in Stoke on Trent.
