We report a case of a metal splinter ejected by a circular saw tooth from a wooden board into the left ventricle of the heart. A 35-year old man was admitted second day after accident attributed to work complaining about general weakness. Only a small non-bleeding wound was found near his sternum. CT scan showed a metal wire entrapped inside his heart. Successful removal was done during surgery.
