The Injuries in “Home Alone” Analyzed by Medical Experts
"Home Alone" is such a favorite and it's all over TV this time of the year. We all know that paint-cans-to-the-face would probably kill someone, but what do doctors say about all the attacks the Wet Bandits suffer?
We found a website that found out what would really happen!
While it would hurt really bad, no serious injuries are likely.
Guaranteed head and spinal injuries and possible bone fractures.
A glowing-hot doorknob would be around 900 degrees. 3rd-degree burns result from 140 degrees.
If someone's head was under a blowtorch for as long as it shows in the movie, burns to the skull would be fatal.
Guaranteed facial bone fractures, likely unconsciousness with concussion and possible brain injury.
Possibly a few stitches
Left untreated, stepping on a nail can potentially lead to many serious problems, but it's easily treatable. Marv likely had treatment at the jail.
Knock out teeth, break facial bones, brain trauma -- this would be the most damaging (aside from the blow torch).
