A 15-year-old Kansas boy got a large knife to the face, and doctors say he's extremely lucky.
Jimmy Russell said her son, Eli Gregg, was playing last Friday outside of their home when she heard him scream.She found him with a 25cm knife jutting from just below his eye and called emergency services.
Jimmy Russell说周五时，她的儿子Eli Gregg在家外面玩时听到了儿子的尖叫。她发现一把25厘米的刀戳中了他眼睛下方，然后立刻打电话给紧急救护。
The knife was embedded in his skull and extended to just under his brain.The blade's tip, meanwhile, was pushing against his carotid artery, which supplies the brain with blood.
A team of surgeons put together an intricate plan to remove the blade.They were prepared for possible bleeding into the brain, but the operation went without a hitch and the artery remained intact.
