A bullet was fired from the head of a 9-year-old boy


A 9-year-old boy was evacuated last night (Friday) to the trauma unit with a head injury, which turned out on imaging tests as a bullet that was positioned in his brain. The staff of the trauma unit stabilized his condition and later in the night underwent urgent neurosurgical surgery.

Dr. Guy Alor, a senior neurosurgeon at Hadassah Ein Kerem who operated on the boy, said: “In the operation, with the anesthesiologist Dr. Chloe Maimoni, we removed the pill from the depths of the brain. The delicate and sensitive procedure was successful and the child felt well and recovered well in the pediatric intensive care unit.”
