A drunken barroom dart game turned sour when the guy who was losing became so angry that he put a dart into the back of his deaf opponent’s head.
But the violent assault turned out to be for the best when the tiny needle somehow punctured the hearing center in Brian Lundcaow’s brain and restored his sense of hearing to full capacity.
Lundcaow, 37, had been totally deaf since suffering a bizarre viral infection at age four.
Now, he can hear beautifully.
“I appreciate everything in life,” says Lundcaow. “I have no complaints.”
