I'm going to blast this huge rock that is blocking our path so that my crew can dig holes.
The Skull Crack
OMG NOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAH SAVE ME
Phineas Gage is the foreman of a track construction gang that is in the process of blasting a railroad minutes before the worst moment of his life.
Transport Him, Quickly!
His task is to blast the solid rock into pieces small enough for his crew to dig loose with hand tools.
Dr. Edward Williams
So this, this, and this happened...
OMG! This is impossible what happened to you?
Something distracts Phineas. Just when he was distracted, the tamping iron Phineas was leaning on explodes and cracks through his skull.
Phineas Gage's After-Effect
Do the BLEAP work properly you idiot.
What's the matter with him these days?
When most people would have died from the accident, Phineas Gage was miraculously alive and stood very strong as he originally were. He was instantly sent to Cavendish Hotel, where he has been living.
Let me help you get off, Sir.
No, thank you.
Although many victims of explosion find it difficult to explain the situation they were in, Phineas was able to explain the situation as if he was a spectator, not the victim himself
Although Phineas Gage fully recovered and the story is not believed by other doctors, Dr. Williams also hear from Phineas' peers that the once efficient and capable foreman was now irreverent and indulging even at his best friends. Dr. William knowing this is sure this is an after-result of brain damage.
