    toddler impaled by pressure washer

    A 17-month old North Carolina boy slipped off a chair and was impaled by a rod that lodged two to three inches into his head.

    The L-shaped rod, which was attached to a pressure washer, was stuck next to the biggest vein in the toddler’s brain, according to CNN affiliate WRAL in Raleigh, North Carolina. Injury to the vein could have resulted in instant death or a massive stroke or the boy could’ve bled to death when the rod was pulled out. Read more on WRAL.

    On Monday, Jessiah Jackson sat on the lap of his family members as he stared bright-eyed into the camera and cooed. His family, who live in Leland, North Carolina, call him their "blessed baby," according to CNN affiliate WTVD. Read more on WTVD.

    The only sign of the accident was a pink wound on the back of his head.

    After Jessiah fell on the rod on July 17, his family reacted immediately and a neighbor who is a rescue squad volunteer sawed off the power washer, according to the affiliates' reports. Jessiah received treatment at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill where doctors removed the rod after a two-hour surgery.

    I remember the story it was one of those homeowner units that have the L bracket on the handle for the gun to hang on. They had to saw the bracket off the frame of the pressure washer. Wasnt a a quick connect issue
