Doctor saves dying teen with household drill
“He saved our son’s life.”
- Michael Rossi, Nicholas' father
A quick-thinking doctor has saved the life of an Australian teenager by boring a hole into his skull with a household drill to remove a blood clot.
Realising that he had no proper neurological equipment to hand, Dr Carson found the next best thing in the hospital maintenance room: a household De Walt drill, which was sterilised for surgery.
