Spear Enters Boy’s Head Above Eye…
June 19, 2012
Doctor says, “Hmm, okay, you start rehab later this week“:
When you see the X-ray, you cannot help but cringe and hope something like this never, ever, happens to you. A three-foot long steel shaft with stainless steel tips, shot from a spear-gun, perfectly stuck in a teenager’s skull, entering one inch above his right eye, through his brain, and exiting the back of his head.
“You could feel the tip under the skin on the posterior part of the skull,” said Trauma Care surgeon Dr. George Garcia says
And 16-year-old Yasser López not only survived, but doctors say he stands a good chance of making a near-full recovery.
