    Soldier Survives 9" Knife Stuck in His Head!



    Soldier Survives Knife in Skull
    Bob Woodruff Talks to an Army Sergeant With an Amazing Story of Survival


    Oct. 31, 2007

    Of all the injuries in the war in Iraq, the one Sgt. Dan Powers sustained was among the most unusual.

    Powers, a member of the Army's 118th MP Company Airborne, was in eastern Baghdad investigating an explosion when suddenly an Iraqi walked up to him and stabbed him in the right side of his head. He didn't know what hit him.

    "It felt like someone kind of clothesline tackled me and a thump on the side of the head, like a bang," he said.

    An Iraqi teenager had inched up behind Powers on a Baghdad street and plunged a 9-inch knife deep into his skull, penetrating his brain.

    Powers, who did not realize he had been stabbed, reacted quickly by throwing his attacker to the ground. Sgt. Michael Riley then tackled the man and turned him over to Iraqi security forces.

    "He had no idea what had really happened," said Spc. Ryan Webb, a company medic. "I did have to fight a few people off that came by and were like, 'Whoa, you've got a knife sticking out of your head.'"

    Amazingly, Powers remained conscious and alert as he was rushed to a combat hospital, when he finally noticed the knife and realized the gravity of his injury.

    "They kept telling me to go sit down, they didn't tell me how bad I was hurt yet," Powers said.

    Miraculous Survival

    Just a few hours later, doctors in Iraq prepared to take the daring but necessary action of pulling the knife out of Powers' skull -- a move they knew might kill him, and almost did.

    Powers lost 2 liters of blood -- about 40 percent of the total in his body.

    Back home now at Ft. Bragg, Powers and his wife Trudy are counting their blessings.

    "All along I knew he would live because I know him and I know how strong a guy he is," Trudy said.

    Amazingly, Powers' memory, speech and coordination are all intact.

    "I have a little bit of a loss of sensation on my face due to all of it and I can't raise my right eyebrow. So I am kind of like Mr. Spock," Powers joked.

    And Powers is forever grateful for the care he received from the military.

    "Those are the heroes to me. They're my heroes," he said. "I am just glad to have made it when so many didn't."

    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    This seems like a group of people that we can deal with. Let's all sit down with them and talk about our feelings.

    I'm thinking the next james Bond. Roger Moore did pretty well with an eyebrow curiosity.

    A question though. How come he didn't shoot the little fuck in the head?
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    LOL

    I'm sorry, but when he tells that story in a bar, no one's going to be able to keep a straight face.

    Nice Iraqi teenager, though. I hope they fry his testicles.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
