The family of a 10-year-old Missouri boy is now thanking God for sparing his life after he was dangerously impaled in the face by a nearly foot-long meat skewer.
“Only God could have directed things to happen in a way that would save him like this,” said 10-year-old Xavier Cunningham’s father, Shannon Miller, in an interview with Fox4KC. “It really was a miracle.”
Miller explained on a GoFundMe campaign seeking to raise $200,000 to help with his son’s medical expenses that Xavier was playing with some friends in a field behind the family’s home on Saturday when the accident that could have taken his life happened.
“They discovered a BBQ meat skewer laying in the grass and picked it up so no one would step on it. As the afternoon progress[ed] they stuck fork end of the skewer into the ground. After asking permission they proceeded to climb into the neighbor’s treehouse for the first time to play. Unbeknownst to everyone there was a large yellow jacket nest in the treehouse,” he said.
“My son and his friends were attacked by the swarm and he fell onto the skewer. After many hours of prayer and planning the team at KU Med Center saved his life and removed the skewer from his face,” Miller explained.
Dr. Koji Ebersole who assessed the path of the skewer in Xavier’s face at the University of Kansas Hospital, explained in a video posted on The University of Kansas Health System’s YouTube channel that he was “amazed” that the boy had survived the injury.
