This man needs to buy a Lotto ticket immediately.

A ballsy builder is lucky to be alive after accidentally firing an inch-and-a-half nail into his own crotch - barely missing his penis.

Sweat-inducing pictures of the horrific hydraulic hand nail gun incident were captured by Mathew Meagher, a colleague of the unfortunate 22-year-old.

Mathew said the man, who did not wish to be named, mistimed pulling the trigger on the piece of equipment while working on a site outside Swansea, Wales on Thursday afternoon - resulting in the excruciating injury of every man's worst nightmares.

And stunned Mathew, 30, also from Swansea, claims the construction worker 'wasn't fazed' as he stood with the heavy-duty nail embedded into his nether regions.
