A teenager who cheated death after he was shot in the head with a three-foot fishing spear is learning how to walk again.
Yasser Lopez is amazing doctors by making a speedy recovery nearly three months after the accident which almost claimed his life.
It was in June earlier this year that 16-year-old Yasser and a friend was swimming in a lake near their home in Miami-Dade, Florida.
The boys were preparing the gas-powered spear gun to hunt for fish in the lake when it suddenly fired.
The three foot long spear pierced Yasser’s head an inch above his eye and when through the back of his skull.
‘I could see the spear. It was bothering me on the back, like it was scratching the floor.
‘I could feel it inside my head, so I wanted to take it out,’ Yasser Lopez told Today News.
