Take a close look at this x-ray. It's of a ten year old boy. The youngster is now recovering. As the story goes, the child was attacked by insects while in a tree. As he fought off the bugs, he tumbled from the tree, landing on a meat skewer. As you can see the skewer penetrated his skull from his face to the back of his head.
As horrifying as this injury is, it could have been much worse. The skewer had completely missed the child's eye, brain, spinal cord and major blood vessels, His doctors expect a full recovery.
