Damn! That kid's got bragging rights forever (plus the scar and news articles to prove it).
The only conclusion I've come to is that this kid would make a horrible ninja, stealthy my ass. Also, what kind of name is Dez Heal??
Poor kid. Thankfully he's alive.
His dad is a trooper for not freaking out.
That's my town, folks!
"they finally got the splinter out"
I knew a kid that went through something similar. While playing with fireworks a metal rod impaled the under side of his mouth and went through his cheek. Everything went well except the rod took out a large chuck of his tongue.
Thats what I was thinking. Oh and that one poor kid is scared of bamboo!
Props to the kids for not freaking out and pulling it back out themselves!
