TUCSON, Ariz. — An 86-year-old Arizona man is expected to make a full recovery after being impaled through his eye socket with pruning shears.

University Medical Center said Monday that Leroy Luetscher of Green Valley was working in his yard on July 30 when he dropped a pair of pruning shears, which landed point-side down in the ground.
