(WCCO) A Minnesota boy is recovering from a bad injury after a freak winter accident in the Twin Cities. The 10-year-old was hit in the head by falling ice from a Minneapolis skyway.
His family was just leaving a dinner on Hennepin Avenue Sunday when a large icicle dropped onto Ayden Schuler. His dad took off a shirt and held it against his son's head until paramedics arrived and started treatment for serious head trauma.
Aayden was sent home Monday with seven staples and some sutures closing the wound in his head.
His dad says it was scary: you think of icicles as cute little dangly things off the top of your roof, but you don't think of them as the daggers that they can be.
