It was not less than a miracle that a spear that accidentally entered the brain of a teenager did not harm the main blood vessel in the brain. Resultant of which, Yasser Lopez, 16, is alive and has been recovering from a three-hour spear removing surgery.
Lopez was with his friends and one of his friends while loading a Cressi Sub SL spear gun accidentally fired the gun. The three-centimeter long spear pierced the brain and came out from the back. He was immediately rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital, Miami.
Doctors removed front and back part of spear, so they could know the exact location of spear, which has got stuck inside the brain. Through X-ray, it was revealed that spear has not affected the main blood vessel.
"If someone had been 60 or 70 or 80, they would have done much worse - the brain is more brittle, the blood vessels tend to be frailer", said Dr. Ross Bullock, who is a neurosurgeon at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
A three hour surgery was being conducted and spear was removed. Doctors were of the view that Lopez did not remember anything about the accident. He was recovering at intensive care unit, but seeing his discovery, doctors have shifted him to private ward.
