Hugo Pereira da Silva, 27, before removal of the harpoon spear

A fisherman is lucky to be alive after he was shot in the head with a harpoon during a fishing trip in Brazil.

The 27-year-old man — identified in local television reports as Hugo Pereira da Silva — was on a fishing trip with a friend at the Rio Paranaiba dam in Araguari when the 3-foot spear pierced his face on Tuesday, according to officials, Diaro de Pernambuco reported.

“Unfortunately, they were not careful with the positioning, the distance,” Araguari fire department Deputy Lt. Lucenildo Batista Alves told the site. “And the waters of the river in our region are murky, especially in the very dirty rainy season.”

The metal shaft — which was just inches away from causing more serious injuries or even death — was removed and the man was released from a hospital Wednesday. Hugo Pereira da Silva, before and after the removal of the harpoon.Military Fire Brigade of Minas Gerais

Alves said it was not immediately clear exactly how the man was struck, or whether his friend — who was fishing on the opposite side of the dam — had fired the spear. Authorities are investigating the fishing trip, since it’s illegal to use harpoons from November through February.

“We do not know if the friend saw any fish or if the gun fired alone, but it hit the face of this boy,” Alves told PescaAmadora.com, according to a translation of the page. “He was very lucky, as the harpoon crossed the soft part of the mouth, did not reach any bone or more sensitive part, such as the brain. It could have been fatal.”

Sounds like a good idea for a movie plot.

What happened? Did he go spear fishing with Dick Cheney ?

Si vis pacem, para bellum

Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.

There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."Theodore Roosevelt-1907.

I am concerned for the security of our great nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within." -- General Douglas MacArthur
