This was a normal day a work blasting threw mountains and rocks
It was all normal until Phineas Gage was distracted by something or someone and dropped the rod in the hole with the gunpowder which created a spark and the explosion started.
Due to the explosion, the rod shot out of the hole, threw his head, and a few feet back after hitting his head . His crew helped him get in the wagon and he went home. Then a docter came and helped him recover.
He recovered and lived more than 10 years later. But he was never the same as he was before, due to his injury on his emotional part of his brain.
