Ripley's Believe It or Not by Ripley’s Believe It or Not! for March 30, 2005
Gail Creek, San Antonio, Texas, had a 10 inch long steel book embedded in his head during a backhoe accident. It cut just millimeters from his brain and yet vital arteries- yet he survived! A mugger picked the wrong man when he attacked 88-year-old Gerhard Brinkman in Halberstadt, Germany. Brinkman, a boxing champion in his younger days, not the mugger unconscious! Lucy Brown, the beloved pet dog of Sonia Wilde and Steve Begley of England will be the legal bridesmaid at the couple's wedding!
