The 28-year-old needed surgery to remove the key from near his thumb bone, after he met with the accident outside a branch of Screwfix.
According to him, he had stumbled and while he tried to break his fall by putting out his hand, two of the keys pierced right through his skin and got lodged into his right hand.
Stockton-Link was taken to the hospital and doctors gave him an anaesthetic and tetenus jab while they pulled one of them out.
As published by The Daily Mail, he said, “'I put my hands down to stop myself. Didn't realise until I stood up what had happened. 'The Screwfix staff called an ambulance and said not touch them.”
Stockton-Link apologised to customers for having to cancel bookings saying, “Due to an injury sustained at work I've had to forgo any for the foreseeable future. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.”
