Medical marvel: Boy's head successfully reattached by Israeli physicians following car accident

A 12-year-old boy in Israel, Suleiman Hassan, survived an 'internal decapitation' after being struck by a car while cycling.

He was airlifted to Hadassah Medical Center for emergency surgery where doctors reattached his head to his neck, a process which required the placement of new plates and fixing equipment to repair the damage.

Despite only a 50% chance of survival, Hassan was discharged from the hospital with a cervical splint; he is reportedly functioning normally with no neurological, sensory, or motor issues.
