Depending on which way you look at it, 22-year-old Brock Meister of Plymouth, Indiana, is either incredibly lucky or incredibly unlucky.

When he was born, he wasn't breathing, and experienced seizures before CPR saved him. As a teen, he endured chemo and radiation to beat brain cancer. But it's his latest brush with death that has to be the most incredible survival story of all.

Considering everything else the poor guy has been through, he got a break and came out ahead.  Sorry the pun just came as I typed.  He was seriously lucky. This makes me wonder how the doctor that's working on head, or is it actually body transplants, is doing.

"internal decapitation"? Isn't that the same as a broken neck?
