I couldn't yank them out with my pliers though I jerked with everything I had. My thought was, there's no way this will hurt more getting pulled out than it does right now. Those barbs would not let go!

This next one is not for the faint of heart. My pastor friend in Miami took his son & a guest preacher fishing last spring. The son got hung up on a lily pad while working a topwater. He snapped it free & it came whizzing back. He thought it was about to hit their guest, but no... it lodged in his own eyeball. They were in the Everglades & had a 1 hour trip to get back to the boat ramp, then by ambulance it was another hour to the hospital. The University of Miami now uses this picture in their med school textbook for eye injuries. His dad will tell you it's only a miracle, from lots of prayer, that he has most of his vision in that eye. My friend is taking me fishing this summer. I will be taking my sunglasses & a hook proof vest!

I got 10 ringed in my eye on the 4th of July with a stick and that was brutal enough. I can't imagine that trebble in my eye. Glad he's substantially OK.
