""You wouldn't believe your eyes," trauma surgeon Dr. Julie Wynne said in a statement. "Half of the pruning shears was sticking out and the other half was in his head." At the hospital, surgeons removed the shears and rebuilt his eye socket with metal mesh, saving his eye."
OMG. Made me nauseous just reading the story. The pics are graphic.
Big kudos to the surgeons who were able to give him his life back.
AND, his eyesight.
