The Drive’s Hero of the Day
Oh. Oh, no.
This guy, who left the hospital with the greatest x-ray of all time. Yes, that’s a spark plug lodged inside his palm. Evidently, the involved parties constructed a makeshift launching apparatus from 3/4-inch metal tubing and an air compressor. It backfired. One very messy ride to the emergency room later, the plug was extracted. Didn’t even need surgery. Hero.
