Modern medicine.Surgeons have managed to reattach the head of a toddler that became separated from his neck in a severe car accident.
In a recent article trending all over Facebook and Google is a story, about the miracles of modern day science.The victim was 16-month-old Jackson Taylor who was in the car with his mother and sister when it crashed head-on with another vehicle at a staggering 110 kph (70 mph) last month. The sheer force of the impact was enough to cause his spine to detach from his head, but thankfully it didn’t kill him. After reaching the operating theater in Brisbane, Australia, the infant underwent 6 hours of surgery during which spinal surgeon Geoff Askin inventively used wire and a piece of the boy’s rib to graft his vertebrae back together.
The toddler must now spend eight weeks in a brace, or “halo” to his family, which will keep everything in the right place and facilitate a speedy recovery. After that short stint, hopefully he will be able to lead a normal life
