Harpoon Impaled Brain
‘A teenager in south Florida survived being shot in the head with a fishing spear.
Yasser Lopez, 16, was fishing with a friend when the weapon went off as the pair were loading equipment onto their boat.
The spear entered just above his right eye and penetrated through his brain to the back of his skull.
The teenager was airlifted to a Miami-area hospital where doctors spent three-hours removing the spear with the aid of a high-speed drill
The medical team revealed that Lopez had been awake and interacting with the emergency team when he arrived at the hospital, which indicated to the doctors that he could survive the ordeal as they planned the surgery.
Miraculously, no vital brain structures were damaged by the harpoon.
Following surgery he could communicate in short sentences with hospital staff but he had no recollection of the accident.

One of the most tragic incidents in our country’s recent history took place on July 11 when 43 school students were killed in a road accident at Mirsarai, Chittagong on their way home from a football match. We lost so many blooming buds of the nation that it’s almost comparable with the loss of valuable lives during the BDR mutiny.
It has been reported that the truck was driven by the helper instead of the driver and he was talking on the cell phone at the time of the incident. This is how Cell phones become killers. A criminal may kill one or two persons at a time with a gun, but this incident shows that a Cell phone can kill many at a time. So, time has come to take another look at the situation and be alert.’
