This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 78%. (I’m a bot)

A nine-year-old boy from East Jerusalem is recovering after doctors at Hadassah Medical Center removed a bullet that hit him in the head, passed through his brain, ground to a halt upon reaching the inside of his skull and then migrated back into his brain.

Neurosurgeon Guy Elor told The Times of Israel he was “Amazed” that even though the bullet went through “Very important brain structures,” the boy was chatting and recovering, and was expected to have minimal brain damage or none at all.

Elor said the child was “Very lucky,” commenting: “Had the bullet gone in at another angle it would have caused much more damage to the brain and left significant neurological damage.”
