Doctor drills into boy's head to save his life Answered
The regular household drill is a wonderful thing. It can be used for drilling holes in wood, scrambling eggs, and even drilling into a boy's skull to drain it of blood clots. Yikes!
Dr Rob Carson performed the procedure on Nicholas Rossi, 13, after the boy fell off his bike and hit his head.
The doctor had never attempted the surgery before, and had to be talked through the operation by a Melbourne neurosurgeon.
The boy's father said the doctor's improvisation had saved his son's life.
But Dr Carson told reporters: "It's not a personal achievement, it is just a part of the job."
