Jerusalem Surgeons Reattach Arab Boy’s Head After Internal Decapitation

(JNS) Surgeons at Hadassah Medical Center-Ein Kerem managed to reattach a boy’s head after a horrific accident left him internally decapitated.

A car hit Suleiman Hassan, a 12-year-old Arab from the Shomron, as he rode his bike, the Jerusalem hospital announced. After he was airlifted to Hadassah’s trauma unit, doctors discovered that the ligaments holding the rear base of his skull were seriously damaged, leaving it disconnected from the top vertebrae of his spine.

“The injury is extremely rare,” Dr. Ohad Einav, the orthopedic specialist who led the surgery together with Dr. Ziv Asa, said.

Showing no neurologic or motor deficiencies, Hassan was recently discharged from the hospital. Hadassah doctors will continue to monitor him.

Hassan’s father did not leave his bedside during his recovery from surgery, medical staff reported. “I will thank you all my life for saving my dear only son. Bless you all,” he said.
