Man Gets Stuck in Particle Accelerator

I came across this article about Russian technology research during the cold war. Apparently one of the researchers got his head stuck in a particular accelerator and lived to tell the tale... (only after the cold war was over)

Leaning over the piece of equipment, Bugorski stuck his head in the space through which the beam passes on its way from one part of the accelerator tube to the next and saw a flash brighter than a thousand suns. He felt no pain.
Over the next few days, skin on the back of his head and on his face just next to his left nostril peeled away to reveal the path the beam had burned through the skin, the skull, and the brain tissue. The inside of his head continued to burn away: all the nerves on the left were gone in two years, paralyzing that side of his face. Still, not only did Bugorski not die, but he remained a normally functioning human being, capable even of continuing in science.

Interesting stuff...
