A Florida teen is undergoing a miraculous recovery after he was accidentally shot in the head with a spear gun.
Yasser Lopez, 16, was on a fishing trip with friends June 7 when the spear gun they had brought along accidentally went off, shooting the 3-foot-spear through the teen’s skull.
“The amazing thing is that the boy is able to speak a little now,” said Dr. Ross Bullock, the neurosurgeon caring for Lopez. “He’s saying short sentences, he’s out of bed, he’s able to make his needs felt.”
It is being reported that, upon regaining consciousness, Lopez’s first words were “That’s a clown spear gun, bro.”
We here, of course, seriously hope all the best for all parties involved, especially Mr. Lopez. TFM was unable to reach the shooter of the spear gun, but sources close to the families state that the former Vice President could not feel any worse about the entire ordeal.
