So much for turning the other cheek.

When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

Hey. The poor guy got shot with a doggone spear. Don't make him the butt of your pathetic jokes.
Dang, hopefully it sparred his sciatic nerve-could be a life of severe neuropathy.
Seeing that made MY butt cheeks tighten. Ouch! I hope everything came out ok.

A armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one has to back it up with his life.
Have some compassion! You all are always so cheeky!

Those spears generally have a flange or barbs at the tip, and a length of line on the other.

I'm best guessing that the guy had to be the victim of somebody elses negligent discharge and that it was not self-inflicted.
I just can't imagine how a person would/could shoot themselves in the ass with a speargun.

Philippine Islands, 1980.
Me and three others were spearfishing. Had been in the water long enough to use 3 tanks. We all popped up at the same time and proceeded to get in the boat. As a matter of safety, we always fired our spear guns before getting on the boat or at least we removed the band tension on them.
New guy decided to fire his off,about 4 feet deep underwater, without realizing that his gun was sticking straight up instead of down. Spear hits guy on the tail-board of the boat, hitting him square in butt,entering from left cheek to right cheek, low left to upper right at an angle.He starts cussing like a sailor,I'm about 3 feet away wondering what the heck is going on. Spear about 3 feet long,is sticking out of guys butt. We couldn't pull it out for fear of doing more damage so we took him to the hospital. That was about an hour ride away. He couldn't sit, he could barely stand,and he said that he could feel every wave that the boat hit.
We finally got to shore and he had to walk a pretty good ways and it was hilarious to watch. The poor guy was in much pain, but he could only take very small steps because that spear was stuck in the crack of his tail...the crack that moves and allows you to walk. When pinned shut with a spear, you cant walk very well at all.So here is this guy in lots of pain, two of us helping him to take itty bitty steps and we were laughing uncontrollably. It was really a sight to behold.
He goes to the ER in a jeep, standing up in the back the whole way. Because the guy that shot him had nailed several fish with it, they had to cut him straight across to clean it all out, removing slime and gut matter from him to prevent infection. That was the worst part of the deal. They were deep cuts with lots of stitches and he had to spend awhile in the hospital, unable to move or even lay on his back. It took several weeks to recover.
We all had to give statements in an investigation and had to sit in a interrogation room for awhile, but I guess they finally figured out that it was an accident and let us go.
I can sympathize with the guy in the picture, you know that had to hurt.
