Default 12oz Lead Sinker Meets the Head

This is what happens when a 12oz lead sinker comes untied and sails across the boat deck like a missile...


Of course I wiped off the blood, doused it with alcohol and then suited up for a tech dive on the edge...

Dang!! I thought at first you got to close to the pier. Looks like you took it in stride, did it knock you out? That is a lot of lead to the head. I am surprised you went diving after that, I wouldn't think a concussion under water pressure would be good.
