Illinois man in joking mood despite nail in brain

ORLAND PARK, Ill. (AP) -- A man who had a nail imbedded in his brain for more than a day hasn't lost his sense of humor.

Dante Autullo's fiancΘe says he posted an X-ray of the 3 1/4-nail in his brain to Facebook -- while he was in an ambulance en route to a hospital.

Gail Glaenzer says Autullo joked that they should call the Discovery Channel to tape the surgery to remove the nail because he was a "walking medical miracle."

The 32-year-old was tinkering in the garage of his Orland Park home Tuesday when then the nail gun went off. He saw a small wound but couldn't find the nail and didn't think much of it.

Glaenzer says he woke up Wednesday feeling nauseated but wouldn't go to the hospital until that night.
