Phineas Gage was working on a railroad and he was using a tampering iron to get the gunpowder into a hole
But then someone distracted him and the rode slipped and fell down the hole and when it was falling it made a spark next to the gunpowder and it exploded and shot the rode up into his head but he still survived
The men near the explosion carry him to a oxcart to get a ride into town and to the doctor at that time
After arriving in town the doctor finally saw him after one hour and the doctor shaves his head and looks at the wounds and you could see the things iron did to his skull and brain and he puts the bone and things back to place and then wraps him up
two days after the accident things got worse. He developed a fever and began to have delirios smells. And he started to have signs of an infection by foul smelling liquid coming out of the wounds. Because of that death would be possible.
Gage made it through that infection but not alive forever. Gages personality took a turn ever since that accident and lost his friends because of his turn of attitude
