Default fireplace poker whammed into head -

Monica swings a hooked fireplace poker into Tim's head so that the hook pierces his temple and pokes out his eye. The iron is stuck there with an eyeball swinging off it. She throws up. He passes out. Dies.

Could this happen? If her swing has a curl to it.

Would there be a lot of blood?

Would Tim immediately lose consciousness or would he be puzzled? Angry? In Agony? Or...

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Tim would probably go into shock. There would be a lot of blood, and he would very likely die as a result if medical assistance didnít come quickly.

But, anything in fiction could be possible. Itís all in how you tell it. I write lots of stuff that is unlikely to happen in real life, but Is believable because I said so.
