Eating a Gun

Pronounced a patient dead in the field who had put a large caliber pistol in his mouth and pulled the trigger. By a quirk of this particular case the deceased was brought to our hospital briefly before being transported to the medical examiner in a nearby town.

This guy's face looked like a Halloween mask. His right eye was out of the socket and kind of hanging by the optic nerve. His head was no longer connected to his neck as the bullet had disrupted the atlanto-occipital joint, and he was a sickly pale yellow color. Hard to miss with the barrel in your mouth.
