Teen Recovers From Spear Shot Through His Head
These Florida stories just get crazier by the day.
Yasser Lopez’s injury astonished the experienced team at Ryder Trauma Center in Miami.
Lopez was accidentially shot in the head with a spear by a friend. On Monday, he is leaving intensive care and will eventually be moved to rehabilitation for about two or three months.
“It’s a striking injury. It’s something you don’t see every day, to have a patient awake and speaking with a 3-foot spear through his head,” Dr. George Garcia, an army trauma surgeon said.
Doctors said Lopez and his friend were going to go spear fishing in the ocean,, but never made it. Lopez has no recollection of what happened.
