Pencil Puncture

Kids tend to have a knack for getting into dangerous situations, but in the case of one 20-month-old girl, something dangerous got into her when she fell onto a sharp pencil while playing. Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon explains the trajectory of the pencil and how it narrowly missed the eyeball and optic nerve. Although the pencil did penetrate into her brain, the damage was remarkably minimal, and doctors speculate that she will recover without further complications.
