Check this out for some gruesome shieeeeeet! 

Natty Hargood is a ski instructor in Wyoming and the other day he attempted to ski through some trees but 'cut it too close'. By too close, we mean he hit a tree and welcomed a 45cm branch into his bottom lip.

"I thought maybe my chinstrap got pushed up into my face, so I tried to brush it off and that's when I felt the stick," he told Idaho State Journal. "So, I shook left to right and saw the stick moving in my peripherals."

"I reached out and grabbed it and wiggled it, before realising it was pretty far in there."

"Holy crap, I just got impaled," he recalled. "And then I yelled over to Pete, 'Hey look I got a new piercing'."

The good news - Hagood said the impalement happened so quickly, there was very little pain and before heading back down the mountin, he snapped the limb back down to a manageable 15cm.

"Ski patrol was all like, 'You're crazy, man'."
