Skooter reporting 06/21/12
By just the thought of it, I was already wincing. A teenager from Miami Yasser Lopez is in a critical condition in hospital after a spear was accidentally fired through his brain on a fishing trip .
Lopez, 16 was rushed to a hospital with three feet of the spear jutting out of his brow after a spear gun unintentionally went off as it was being loaded. The spear entered his head two inches above his right eye, passes through his brain and exited at the back of his skull. Miraculously it missed the major blood vessels in the brain and doctors successfully removed it in three hours of surgery.
However, Lopez is not the only person to have suffered injuries where the X-rays make you flinch just to look at them. Whatever type of missiles such as metal poles, knives, scissors or swords, the people in these X-rays featured above all had astonishing escapes.
