A 10-year-old boy is lucky to be alive after a horrific injury to his skull missed major arteries in an incident doctors describe as, "one in a million."
The Missouri boy was climbing a tree when he was attacked by yellow jackets and fell down, landing face first on a meat skewer which penetrated his skull from the face to the back of the head. He's expected to make a full recovery, which many are calling, "miraculous."
