  • The  great Phineas Gage
  • The accident
  • Survival 
  • under the employment of contractors who were working with the Rutland and Burlington Railroad company. Among Gage’s duties was to clear rocks to level the ground. The task involved placing an explosive charge deep into the rock by drilling a hole
  • After the accident
  • The hole was then filled with gun powder, and a fuse was set. As his tamping rod, which measured 3.58 feet  in length struck against the side of the rock, it ignited the gunpowder. The rod shot completely through Gage’s head and landed almost 82 feet behind him. 
  • No longer Gage
  • Gage survived the accident and immediately afterward was conscious and able to speak. About 10 days later, however, he endured a brief period in which he was barely conscious; his doctors anticipated his death.

  •  Gage’s personality appears to have changed, causing his colleagues to state that he was “no longer Gage.” While some have described Gage as restless, disrespectful, and unreliable following the accident.
  • In 1852 Gage took a job in Chile, working as a stage coach driver, having apparently either regained or maintained at least some social skills. Seven years later, in poor health, he moved to California to live with his mother and sister Nearly 12 years after his injury, Gage died of epeleptic seizure.
