Luke Hanoman, 28, knew that biting his nails was a bad habit, but he never realized it could kill him.
“It was a nervous thing,” the father of two from Southport, Britain, told The Mirror. “And one day I bit the skin down the side of my nail. It hurt a bit but I didn’t think anything of it.”
In the days that followed, Hanoman kept going to work despite feeling ill with flu-like symptoms and his finger became swollen.
“I started going really weird and I couldn’t focus,” he told the publication.
