Ohio Man Accidentally Stabs Himself in Neck with Sword


We're not entirely sure how this happened, but a Sandusky-area man was doing something with his sword and... well... he stabbed himself in the neck.

At least that's how the story goes. The gentleman went to the hospital, and the wound looked suspicious enough for the staff to contact the police, who arrived to find out the explanation.

Via the Register:

Paulsen told police he was trying to take a sheath off the sword, but the sheath was too small, leaving a portion of the blade sticking out of the end, the report said.

Paulsen somehow fell on the sword, with the unsheathed portion striking him in the neck, the report said.
