Because karma is such a ‘nice’ lady, we bring you the ironic case of 51-year-old Canadian hunter who ended up in the ER after a hunting session after a dead goose fell on his head. The doctors listed his head injury as ‘severe.’
Canadian Hunter Had Two Teeth Knocked Out by Falling Goose
For Robert Meilhammer of Maryland, a die-hard hunting fan, the latest experience will be hard to forget. The 51-year-old man set out with a group of buddies to bag some waterfowl and, of course, the enjoy the great outdoors.
According to his buddies, one of sighted a gaggle flying about the unfortunate hunter and decided to fire a few rounds. Shortly after, one of them, visibly hit, started dropping but instead of hitting the ground it hit Meilhammer in the head.
Seeing that the man was unconscious, his friends called in the authorities. The paramedics decided to airlift the very unlucky Canadian hunter to a nearby hospital. MRI tests revealed that the blow was severe, and, at the moment, the patient can’t remember anything short of his name.
Upon impact, the dead goose also knocked two of teeth. While commenting on Meilhammer’s condition, the authorities said that the man is lucky to be alive, considering that adult geese can reach a weight of up to 12 kilograms.
Still, the patient is in a stable condition and appears to be responding to treatment. As for Meilhammer’s willingness to go on a new hunting trip, it remains to be seen but, judging by his concussion and by the fact that he will feel compelled to visit his dentist upon discharge, it’s very likely that he will try out something less dangerous like collecting stamps.
The authorities declared that this is the first case in Canadian history featuring a dead fowl exerting its revenge upon the hunter.
