This story, like so many unbelievable stories, comes courtesy of the great state of Florida. I don't know if it's something in the water, but for whatever reason the Sunshine State seems to attract people who, for want of a better term, just don't know how to hang.
Take today's heroine, for instance. Katherine Gaydos was enjoying a regular day in awesome Florida when she got something in her eye. Rather than blink it out or run it under the tap link a normal person, she demanded her friend squirt eyedrops in her eye. Her friend, who is either an idiot or the world's cruelest troll, picked up a small tube of super glue.
Three eyes. Two people. And no one checked the label.
Gaydos' eye could not open again. “As soon as I felt it in my eye I felt it burn and I closed my eye and screamed 'Call 911,'” she told WPBF-TV.
On a more serious note, Gaydos' eye was glued shut for a week because she couldn't cover the medical costs. It's since been prised open, although I'm sure this will incur significant medical bills.
I guess the only thing worse than Florida is the American healthcare system.
