(Nearly) Severed Head Reattached?

Nurses General Nursing


I overheard some women at my exercise class saying that there was a man whose head was reattached after being almost completely severed. That's all I know. Anyone have info on this or is it just a rumor?

Nope, there was a segment on Good Morning America today. They interviewed the patient and the surgeon. Pretty remarkable.

From the responses on Rustyhammer's thread, I'm guessing my post won't be a popular one. but.....

That is a true miracle. The doctor just happened to be available..that the guy survived at all.....

Can you say guardian angel?

we have nothing against religion and spirituality....

it's being gagged and smothered with it, as a few posters on that thread were doing, that raises our hackles...

Sure seems to minimize that by my saying he was lucky that's for sure. WOW......where'd all the blood go? WOW:eek:

okay, sunny. i'm in the bible belt. "not believing" is alien to me.


I know 2 different men, each had severe back injuries, both were told they would never walk or work again...both work, walk, run, hunt, fish, give piggyback rides to their grandkids, etc..etc.. I believe in the power of prayer.

and the almost severed head story just makes me remember why i do believe.

That is astonishing.

I won't preach, just referring to my signature line.

How is it that he wasn't brain damaged? Or didn't bleed to death? Amazing. And amazing that the doctor was working on a technique for just this sort of thing. How often does it happen?
