A teenager in Florida is recovering after being shot in the head with a fishing spear. Sixteen-year-old Yasser Lopez was spear fishing with a friend when he was accidentally shot in the head. The spear entered just above his right eye, and penetrated through his brain to the back of his skull. Miraculously, no vital brain structures were damaged by the harpoon.
