Jaxon Taylor, a 16-month-old toddler, miraculously recovered from a car crash injury which caused his head to be internally decapitated.
On September 15, Jaxon was travelling with his mother Rylea and 9-year-old sister Shayne when their vehicle had a head on collision with another vehicle at 70mph along the Newell Highway in New South Wales.
A report by Mail Online Australia revealed that their vehicle collided with a Ford Falcon driven by a teenage man.
The family was on their way to Maronbah, Queensland to start a new life when the accident happened.
According to Dr Geoff Askin, a spinal surgeon, Jaxon’s head pulled apart from his neck as a result of the intense force from the collision.
Dr Askin and a team of surgeons conducted six hours of surgery to put back Jaxon’s head by attaching a halo device to his skull. Meanwhile, his vertebrae was reattached using a tiny piece of wire.

Dr Askin explained: “A lot of children wouldn’t survive that injury in the first place, and if they did and they were resuscitated then they may never move or breathe again.”
