Doctors in Kansas, USA were able to remove a 10-inch knife lodged in a 15-year-old boy’s brain.
According to a report by US Today the boy, identified as Eli Gregg, was playing with his friends when the incident took place
The boy’s mother said she heard a scream outside and when Eli came to the house, he was soaked in blood and had a piece of metal stuck in his face.
Apparently, the boy was handling the knife when he fell and it went through his face, becoming embedded in his skull. The tip of the blade stopped right at his carotid artery.
He was then rushed to a children’s hospital but doctors feared the dangerous position of the knife would cause a stroke or brain damage.
He was then taken to the University of Kansas Health System where the doctors managed to remove the knife.
