At first I thought a rock had flew out and hit me and struck me in the face," Parker, 34, said Wednesday.

The wire, as thick as a heavy-duty nail, had entered through Parker's left nostril and embedded itself in his sinus cavity beneath his eye socket, next to his jaw hinge.


His family is asking for assistance with his medical bills, expected to be in the thousands. His fiancee is a stay at home mom for their seven month old daughter.

34-year-old Bill Parker was mowing his lawn last Sunday in Gulfport when he felt something hit him in the face. After his fiancée brought him to Memorial Hospital, a CT scan revealed that the lawn mower had propelled a 3½-inch metal fence wire up his nose and into his head. Parker had emergency surgery to remove the wire and is recovering.
