An infant miraculously survived internal decapitation after a passer-by that witnessed the accident the boy was in offered him first aid and held his head in the right position until the ambulance came. Doctors believe that the child will make a complete recovery.
It was a rainy, stormy night when Brandy Gonzales and her son, Killian, were driving towards their home in Nevada. They were returning from Boise where they celebrated the infant’s fourth birthday. However, the cold rainy weather prompted the apparition of ice sheets on the road.
Due to the slippery road, Brandy lost control of the wheel when she tried to steer the car in order to avoid colliding with another vehicle that was coming from the opposite direction. Unfortunately, the car crashed into the other automobile, and both passengers were hurt.
Luckily for them, a police officer from Nampa, Idaho, was also on the road that night and witnessed the accident. Keeping his cool, the man managed to find an instrument that helped him break the glass of the car in which Killian was lying.
According to the witnesses, the boy was screaming due to agonizing pain. After breaking the glass, Woodward, the police officer in question, and his wife placed the child in an upright position. The man then proceeded in holding the neck of the little boy as tight as possible, creating the effect of a special neck collar.
The infant miraculously survived internal decapitation thanks to the fact that Officer Woodward knew how and when to act. The man intervened in the nick of time and now, according to the doctors, the child will probably make a complete recovery.
When the ambulances arrived, Brandy and her son were taken to different hospitals. The mother declared that it pained her to know that Killian was alone and suffering while she was unable to offer any sort of comfort to her child.
Fortunately for the two, the witnesses of their accident were skilled people that were able to keep the alive for more than half an hour before the ambulance arrived.
Both need to spend a little more time in the hospital before the doctors decide that they are well enough to be discharged.
