Miraculous Survival

This image, released today, shows the spear that was accidentally shot through the mouth of Elisangela Borborema Rosa, in the coastal city of Arrial do Cabo, Brazil. Brazilian health officials say the 28-year-old woman “miraculously”survived after a harpoon entered her mouth and struck her cervical spine. Officials said that the woman's husband was cleaning his spear gun when it accidentally went off, firing the harpoon that injured his wife. (AP Photo/Rio de Janeiro State Health Department)
