Jaxon Taylor suffered a severe head injury due to a head-on car crash at the age of one. He was lucky to survive. Rescuers airlifted the baby from the site directly to a local hospital. The collision, at 70 mph, was severe and resulted in an internal decapitation causing his head to separate from his neck.

Spinal surgeon, Dr. Geoff Askin along with his medical team, in a surgery that lasted over six hours, was able to reattach his head. Using a stabilizing halo device to hold Jaxon completely still, his vertebrae near the top of his neck was reconnected with a thin piece of wire. The doctor was able to take a part of Jaxon’s rib to graft the two vertebrae together. Dr. Askin is reported as saying it was the worst injury of its kind that he had ever seen.
