Boy’s broken neck - level 2
A 16-months-old Australian boy was in a car crash with his mother and sister. The boy was badly injured – his neck was broken.
Doctors in Brisbane operated on him for six hours to reattach his head to the spine. The operation was led by a doctor who in Australia is known as the “godfather of spinal surgery”.
The boy’s mother and other doctors called the operation a miracle.
The little boy has to wear a brace over his head for eight weeks.
Difficult words: reattach (to attach – to connect something again), spine (the series of bones which go down your back), brace (a thing which stops you from moving a body part too much).
