Perhaps he just couldn’t take the sound of all those vuvuzelas.
A South African man is still alive despite shooting himself in the head and then being hit by a lorry.
The man, from Newcastle, KwaZulu-Natal, was in a car when he shot himself, an emergency worker told the BBC.
The bullet got lodged in his skull without hitting his brain. He then got out of the car to seek help and was hit by a heavy lorry.
He is only alive “by some miracle” the emergency worker said. He is now being treated in a Durban hospital.
I’ll be honest, I had to look up lorry.
