Phineas Gage was the man who got a stamping iron through his head. And lived to tell the story.
The stamping iron went through his head and he sat up and was talking to his workers witha hole in his head,the reason he was able to do this is because the part of his brain that sent pain signals was gone.
Doctors could not believe what they were seeing and could not fathom how he was still alive they thought he should have been dead but he lived 11 more years before he died. But he was never the same before the accident he was kind and sweet now he was mean and mad all the time and part crazy .
