Storyboard Text

  • Phineas Gage was a typical train construction worker. He had a semi essential job that requires him to be handy with a tamping iron. If the tamping iron and the gunpowder were used properly, it will create a explosion that creates a large hole.
  • Phineas leaned slightly over the tamping iron, looking directly at the blasting hole.
  • AHHHH!
  • The tamping iron slipped from Phineas' hand and went straight through his head. The tamping iron landed 30 feet away.
  • BOOM!!!
  • OH My Lord! What happened?
  • Phineas was sent to the nearest hospital. Miraculously he was sill alive!
  • The Tamping rod went through Phineas' left cheek and through the left eye causing the brain to be damaged too.
  • Even though, Phineas' physical state was healed. He will often get angry or have a moody attitude due to his brain injury.
  • Even after the gruesome accident. Phineas Gage lived 11 more years after the happening.
