Boy Miraculously Survives Being Impaled with Meat Skewer Through His HeadThe boy, 10-year old Xavier Cunningham, was playing in a treehouse when wasps attacked him, causing him to fall off the treehouse ladder and onto a rotisserie skewer that he and his friends had placed in the ground, according to local news outlet KCTV. The boy was taken to the hospital, where doctors spent hours preparing for a delicate surgery to remove the skewer. Scans of the boy's head showed that the skewer had pierced his face and passed just underneath the skull, going all the way to the back of the his neck, said Dr. Koji Ebersole, the director of Endovascular Neurology at the University of Kansas Health System, where Xavier was treated.
