Woman Falls Head-First onto a Knife... And Survives
Note: Some of the images in the video clip are very graphic in nature.
A bizarre accident left a woman with a knife lodged deep in her head and what is so amazing is that she actually survived.
Townsen was pulling weeds at her home in Battle Ground when she set a knife down with the blade pointing up and then tripped when she went to turn around, landing right on the knife.
A neighbor girl was shooting baskets across the street when the accident happened and immediately ran inside to get her mom, Kelly Eldred.
"When I get to the edge of my driveway, I can see Mary in this driveway and she's kind of like walking funny and screaming, kind of quiet," she said. "It was eerie, like a monster movie almost."
After all this time, Townsen still wanted to know how and why she survived. The answer is in her CAT scan, which shows the knife just missed her brain stem and also just missed the main artery to her brain.
