A famous YouTuber is currently saying that he is lucky to be alive after accidentally shooting himself in the head with a .50 calibre gun.
WhistlinDiesel was firing rounds at steel plates from just 4 feet away when one bullet reflected and hit him in his head.
Yes, that happened and he survived.
Diesel, whose real name is Cody Detwiler, is lucky to be alive after the bullet ricocheted and hit him right on his forehead.
Cody, who is 22, shared a picture of himself on social media along with the caption that baffled himself too.
He said in the post: “Not sure how I’m alive right now. Love you all and thanks for all of you.”
Talking about the incident, he made another post, where he said:
I literally know what it feels like to get hit with a .50 cal, in the head. You look at life a little differently when you pull the trigger of your .50 cal and your head shakes and blood starts dripping down past your eyes. I put my hand up and just felt metal sticking out and about passed out. Got a CT scan to be safe and they say my skull isn’t cracked soo…. back to target practicing [sic]! For anyone wondering I was shooting steel plates from 4ft away like a boss to see how many it would go through.
Cody then went on to say that the doctors were doing some scans in order to make sure that there was no internal damage.
He also ended up getting a 2 inch lump on his forehead.
The copper jacket of the bullet also got under his skin.
Cody has over 1.75 million subscribers on YouTuber and uploads stunts of monster trucks and other expensive vehicles.
