KANSAS CITY, Kan. - A 15-year-old Kansas boy got a large knife to the face, and doctors say he’s extremely lucky. Jimmy Russell said her son, Eli Gregg, was playing Thursday evening outside of their home in Redfield, about 90 miles (145 kilometres) south of Kansas City, when she heard him scream. She found him with a 10-inch knife jutting from just below his eye and called 911. “It looked pretty grim, it was scary,” Russell said in a video released by the University of Kansas Health System, where he was treated. They were prepared for possible bleeding into the brain, but the operation went without a hitch and the artery remained intact.
