1 Internally Decapitated but Survives Miraculously

Killian Gonzales is all of four years. He was recently a victim of a horrible car crash in which both he and his Mother Brandy were seriously injured. While Brandy suffered fractures in both legs, Killian was even more grievously injured where his head had been internally decapitated. Thanks to the quick thinking of a Good Samaritan, doctors say he is now on the road to complete recovery. How was this possible? Well, according to doctors, it is entirely possible only if quick thinking and fast action of immediate basic medical assistance is rendered to the victim on the spot.

When the spine and skull are severed form each other, the condition is known as an internal decapitation. In such cases, the head literally holds on to the spine by a thread in this case the spinal cord. The survival rate of such an injury is only 1 percent. That well qualifies as a miracle, and the person who saved Killian needs a huge commendation because what she did save his life.

2 Brandy Lost Control of Her Car in a Raging Hailstorm

It was hailing and a terrible storm was raging when Brandy Gonzales and her son Killian were returning back home to Nevada from Idaho. The mother and son had just finished his 4th birthday celebration. With visibility near zero and ice forming on the road, Brandy lost control of her vehicle which skidded and crashed into another car.

Luckily for them, a couple, a police officer and his wife were just coming in the opposite direction down the hill when they witnessed the accident. They both rushed out of their car to extend whatever help they could, when the police officer’s wife heard Killian screaming from the car.

3 Prompt Action of a good Samaritan Saved His Life

Both Leah Woodward and her husband tried to gain entry into the mangled vehicle and they ultimately smashed their way through. It was Leah Woodward’s quick thinking and her husband’s experience in first aid that was to save Killian’s life. On instructions from her husband, who had received transponder training in NAMPA, ID, she gripped his head firmly and held it on as still as possible. She was nervous no doubt and admitted to almost panicking, but she calmed her nerves and remained still with Killian.

Leah commented in a description of the accident on Facebook that the boy was screaming, but lying immobile on his side with his arm placed over his head in what appeared to be an unnatural position. She also noticed a pink fluid all over his head and neck, which was actually spinal fluid. When Paramedics finally arrived after half an hour, Killian was rushed to emergency and that saved his life. The boy survived decapitation, but not without suffering a ruptured spleen, broken arm and ribs and of course a decapitation.
