The story of Phineas Gage is very interesting.Its about a guy who was a railroad construction foreman.One day he was working when a iron rod shot right through his head leaving him in critical condition.The injury was very gruesome as the rod shot skyward and through his left cheek through his brain and out of his skull. Phineas survived this horrible accident and it changed him as a person entirely.This turned him into a drunk and a far different person than he originally was.He ended up dying at the age of 36 in 1860 due to many seizures.This would not be the end of his story though he went on in history as an amazing case of survival that leaves people questioning to this day.
