    11-years-old seems a bit young for me to be driving a Mini in a motocross race. What happened to the good old-fashioned two-stroke lawnmower engine go-karts?

    Ok, so his skull came free of his spine, but everything was still surrounded by meat and his spinal cord didn't snap. It's about as decapitated as one can get and not die within seconds. Pretty amazing.

    It would have been really ironic if he had been riding a horse on Halloween.

    What's he doing still at boarding school? Your son just had his skull snapped off his spine like a dandelion blossom, take him home!

    I've seen TV shows with a few cases like this. Pretty amazing. I think the show was called Medical Incredible.

    It's a miracle, plain and simple.

    The boy's lucky to be alive.

    And I'm not seeing anywhere where it said he was in boarding school...did I miss something? If it's the weekends issue, I'm guessing they mean he's getting time off from the Rehab Center.

    If he is at school....the parents need smacked so hard their jaws fall out.

    That's really incredible.

    I hope he doesn't let all of this luck and attention go to his head.

    That kid's indestructable. o_o And yeah, I get the impression that he might be finishing up school before Christmas holiday. In his position I'd just make it easy on myself.

    "Now we will have a project for you to work on during your break-"

    "I was INTERNALLY DECAPITATED."

    "...you will be working in pairs-"

    "My SKULL was COMPLETELY SEVERED from my NECK."

    "-Chris, however, will only need to write a report on how well the hospital treated him."
