Toddler impaled by pressure washer

A 17-month old North Carolina boy slipped off a chair and was impaled by a rod that lodged two to three inches into his head.

The L-shaped rod, which was attached to a pressure washer, was stuck next to the biggest vein in the toddler’s brain, according to CNN affiliate WRAL in Raleigh, North Carolina. Injury to the vein could have resulted in instant death or a massive stroke or the boy could’ve bled to death when the rod was pulled out. Read more on WRAL.

On Monday, Jessiah Jackson sat on the lap of his family members as he stared bright-eyed into the camera and cooed.  His family, who live in Leland, North Carolina, call him their "blessed baby," according to CNN affiliate WTVD.  Read more on WTVD.

The only sign of the accident was a pink wound on the back of his head.

After Jessiah fell on the rod on July 17, his family reacted immediately and a neighbor who is a rescue squad volunteer sawed off the power washer, according to the affiliates' reports. Jessiah received treatment at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill where doctors removed the rod after a two-hour surgery.

    First, the bad news: because of the 2012 Olympics, UK's most renowned music festival, the Glastonbury festival, is cancelled for 2012.
    Alas, there are not enough resources all of the whole country to handle these two massive
    events all previously same year.

    I would say really any Bad Religion background
    music. They are my go-to band that could do no
    wrong where I am concerned. They had a replacement album
    emerged and I've listened certain a bunch, so I'm
    stoked on that. I would say "Stranger Than Fiction"
    by Bad Religion.

    Following a few months, Grohl and Jones recorded an album, which became Foo fighter's
    debut music. On the album, Grohl played all the instruments.
    He produced far more than eight copies of the tape and gave out the tapes to friends.
    As an alternative to Grohl, moving on as a solo artist,
    he formed a secure. The band was called where to play 918kiss.
    It was established after World War II. After your band was
    formed, they signed an increasing deal with Capitol notes.
    where to play 918kiss released their debut album in 1995 and became
    successful in United Shows.

    Austin Powers -Original Movie Soundtrack: I swear to God.
    It's extremely good. Do not need to even am aware.
    It conveys the feeling of your swinging '60s in that exact tangerine shade you wish
    to experience it in. Pop it in and locate a miniskirt
    collectively with a headband and you'll feel much like the
    coolest mod in London (even for those who are in, for example, Mill Valley).

    A: Yeah, that's completely fair. Totally fair. Once they first asked about to put my name on there,
    I chuckled. At this point, I said I would actually be bummed if my name wasn't on the website.
    I mean, in the time, come on, computer systems great for your
    career. However it is show undertaking. If Jay Leno an extraordinary joke, have going to kill on your own own? I
    always thought the show was very amusing. I did wanna set the record straight with Mike because the time industry (mid-'90s) was around when my first wife died
    in a motorized vehicle wreck.

    The good news, though, is right now there are lots of other big music festivals to
    expect to – and, of course, the Glastonbury
    will resume in 2013.

    I am going to say yeah, at the minimum half the album is.
    There exists a regarding things that we like about our band and men and women like about our
    band which one is the most up tempo and aggressive songs.
    Were usually playing them, and writing them so almost all the album is prefer this for
    specified. It is in order to be be an oldtime Bayside collection.

    So look at the band list and best favorite then contact them for
    getting tickets. Part of the contest is ticket sales.
    Bands can be disqualified for not selling enough or get extra credit for reviewing minimum periods.
    Then find out of the band what their set time is advertise arrangements end up being at The space one
    hour prior. Is actually a to possess a record that you are there generally if the band's time gets increased due to no-shows.
    However, if diet regime decide or are coming for mulitple bands, may also
    purchase tickets from a Space.
