Jordan Taylor had a 1-2 percent chance of surviving this type of injury, which occurred when his skull separated from his neck. His spinal cord remained intact, however.

“I just kept screaming,” Jordan’s mom, Stacey Perez told CBSNews.com. “I just wanted him to wake up.”

Perez was driving when a dump truck plowed into her car after running a stop sign, authorities said. Although Jordan was buckled up in the back seat, the impact was too much.

“The energy basically made his head lift up off his neck, and then move forward,” said Dr. Richard Roberts of Cook Childrens’ Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas, the pediatric neurosurgeon that saved Jordan’s life.

“All of the connective tissue that essentially keeps your head connected to your neck was destroyed,” Roberts said.

Sounds kind of painful.

Why the f*ck do they let people live after that? Put the poor thing out of its misery...I swear, they treat animals better than humans some times.

Maybe because some people find strength from times like these.

o.o strength??? you're saying that you'd wanna live through the lifetime of complications associated with that kind of injury? hell, it'd probably take a year to heal up not counting the nerves. not to mention a accident with enough energy behind it to shred someone's neck muscles should've also caused serious brain trauma. his esophagus and trachea had to have been torn in half, causing a very difficult healing process involving some serious life support hook up. he wont be able to move or speak for a very long time. also, even though it was very improbable that he got through the reconnection of tissues, he still has a VERY slim chance of living. i agree with jay, animals are treated better than humans from some points of view. he put down animals cuz we think they're suffering, but they cant tell us not to. a human can tell you whether or not they want to live, and its wrong to make people suffer cuz of legal issues. i hope the poor kid dies quickly. not because of any malice toward him, but because his life is f*cked up now.

It said he's recovered—if you wanted him to die, you should've hoped for that earlier.

Google Charlie Wiedermeyer and tell me why he couldn't just have died after ALS. Instead, he went out, did community oriented football programs and has had a lasting impact.

He could have died, but he decided to fight on. The rest of the story basically refutes your post.

Good day.

So a thousand people have to suffer their entire lives to let one man enjoy it? How anti-Machiavelli of you.

Just how do 1,000 people "suffer" because of him?

1) i didn't specifically use the word "because"
2) i'm addressing al's argument. lets say given some event, 1 in 1000 will end up enjoying their life. for example, someone becomes crippled, loses speech, cannot walk, etc etc. now say that event just occurred on someone else. Al ignores the 999 and just looks at the 1.

Yes, so you use odds. But I doubt it is 1 in 1000, sir. If you can apply yourself, while disabled -- look at the Paralympics for example -- then you can become a productive member of society.

I don't really see anything in debating this with you anyway. You're morbid, I'm generally not. So why are we even talking about this?

There's a difference between being productive and being happy. I'm productive, but I'm not happy.

There's a quick way to determine the correct odds; we'll gather a bunch of homeless people, decapitate them without killing them, then see how many of them live happily afterwards.
