A henpecked husband took drastic action when his wife nailed him over his boozing.
Sozzled Lin Ma's disapproving spouse Su, 60, did his head in when he returned from a drinking binge — so he took an eight inch nail and knocked it in to his own skull.
The 66-year-old, of Yuyi, southern China, was rushed to hospital with the head wound.
Stunned medics at the Shantou Medical College were able to remove the nail which astonishingly had missed his brain by fractions of an inch.
Lin said the incident had knocked him out.
He added: "I thought life wasn't worth living so I tried to end it. I woke up with a very bad headache - worse even than the biggest hangover I've ever had."
