Somedays you just can't seem to do anything right.
That's probably exactly how an Argentine man feels after he shot himself five times in the head, trying to kill himself, and still survived.
Telam news agency in Argentina reports that an attempted suicide failed after an 84-year-old Argentine man who shot himself five times in the head and once in the stomach miraculously survived.
"Despite the serious injuries he was even conscious when we found him. He could not speak, but he sat on a stool and made himself understood through gestures," says police officer Herman Ruben Gab.
The man, who lived alone, apparently used a very old gun and ammunition and the gunpowder did not explode with as much power as would it normally.
Otherwise police say the first shot would have been fatal.
