Despite the fact that Jaxon's condition was the worst injury of its kind that Dr Askin had seen, he is expected to make a full recovery and live a normal, healthy life.
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.
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.
A piece of Jaxon’s rib was used to graft the two vertebrae together.
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.”
Despite the fact that Jaxon’s condition was the worst injury of its kind that Dr Askin had seen, he is expected to make a full recovery and live a normal, healthy life.
Now, the boy is wearing a “halo” to keep him stable. It will be removed in eight weeks.
Meanwhile, Shayne will be in a body frame for a couple of weeks until her body recovers. She needed to undergo surgery to stop internal bleeding.
Andrew Taylor, the father of the injured kids, told 7NewsMelbourne: “They have taken two broken kids and put them back together. We’re very, very thankful.”
