Feb 3, 2004: A news story on CBC (Canada) news show "Marketplace" about Justin Maracle and his severe brain injury due to an unsafe hook. According to his mother "It went into him like a butter knife. It entered over the right eye, right through his skull and into his brain." I had a hard time typing that sentence as it strikes so close to home; I hadn't thought about it that way before, but if fairly accurately describes the injury Madison sustained.
