I Really Don’t Recommend Using A Crochet Hook This Way

This WTF story comes with a trigger warning, as it has to do with self harm.

In April of 1934 at the Rochester State Hospital, a 55 year old woman was admitted for having a number 12 crochet hook in her head.

This woman had thrust the hook herself into her right temple, she used the heel of her slipper to hammer it further after her hand couldn’t move it further. That worked to get it into her left temporal orbital wall. The hook was completely buried under her skin. Surprisingly she did not loose her vision.

After having the hook removed, she went on to have a full recovery, with no lose of vision or disturbance of ocular mobility.
