A 16-year-old boy was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital yesterday afternoon after a spear from a spear gun was lodged in his forehead during a freak accident. The boy and a 15-year-old friend were fishing in Southwest Miami-Dade when the spear gun accidentally launched.

The incident occurred around 3:30 p.m. near the 5200 block of Southwest 139th Place, according to WSVN. The second teenage boy says that the two were loading the spear gun when it accidentally fired and hit the boy in the head.

According to the Miami Herald, the teen was conscious and talking while being airlifted to Jackson, but his current status is unknown. His family has asked that no additional information be released.
