A 16-year-old teenager is recovering after falling and impaling himself on a set of deer antlers in Carter Lake, Iowa. Todd Reynolds’ grandmother said the teen was climbing through a window in her home Wednesday after locking himself out when he fell onto the antlers.
The antlers stabbed him in the back and just missed his spine.
The grandmother, Jeanne Reynolds, said the antlers were on the floor. She had saved them from a deer that her car crashed into some years ago.
Emergency room doctors removed the antlers Wednesday. The teen was out of the hospital and expected him to recover.
