The doctors there had never seen such injuries. He had a broken clavicle, pelvis, tail bone and ribs, but that was not what stunned the doctors. His neck had technically been ripped off his head. Normally the skull is attached to the neck by a thick ligament that runs from the base to the first vertebra. During the accident his head was ripped forward, which ripped his ligament. This opened up a space between the head and the neck. There was a wide separation of the bone where the skull was ripped from the cervical spine, detaching the head from the neck. "
