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, according to Miami’s WSVN 7 News.

The spear miraculously missed all the major blood vessels in Lopez’s brain, doctors at Jackson Memorial Hospital told reporters during a press conference Monday.

The spear entered the boy’s head about an inch above his right eye and went straight through the skull, doctors said.
