16-month-old toddler, Jackson Taylor, was with his mum and nine-year-old sister Shayne when they collided head on with another vehicle at 70mph on September 15. The child was airlifted from the site of the crash to a hospital in Brisbane. The force from the collision was so intense that Jaxon’s head pulled apart from his neck in an internal decapitation, according to spinal surgeon Dr Geoff Askin. Dr Askin claimed: A lot of children wouldn’t survive that injury in the first place, and if they did and they were resuscitated then they may never move or breathe again. Thankfully, Jackson is expected to make a full recovery.
