Boy Survives Decapitation

A dump truck ran a stop sign, plowing into Stacey Perez mum car nearly decapitated him in a car crash three months ago. Doctors said Jordan had a one -to-two percent chance of surviving his horrific injury arter reattaching his head to his neck.He has now made virtually a full recovery. Jordan was buckled up in the back seat, but the impact basically made his head lift up off of his neck, and then move forward. Jordan's spinal cord remained intact, but his skull separated from his neck. It's called orthopedic decapitation. Doctors were able to reattach his skull with a metal plate and titanium rods, enabling Jordan to start defying overwhelming odds. Stacey Perez mum suffered some significant injuries of her own, but has also recovered.

He started in the wheelchair, then the walker, then he was walking. At first, he wasn't talking at all, and they thought he would have brain damage, and he surprised everyone by regaining all this speech. Jordan is scheduled to go back to school soon on Jan. 7 or 8.
