Butter Knife Stuck In Boy's Head

Surgeons had to cut a butter knife from an 11-year-old boy's head.

Tyler Hemmert and a friend were sitting on a bench in Vancouver, Washington, last week when another boy threw the knife at them.

The knife became lodged in Tyler's head between his scalp and his skull. Doctors were able to remove the knife Sunday.

Police haven't decided if they will file charges against the other boy.

Tyler told his story Wednesday on NBC's Today Show.

    One time when I was 12, I shot a bumble bee with a bb gun, so I guess anything is possible

    i agree with all below...come to think of it...it would really be hard to throw a BUTTER knife and actually have it stick in someones head...i don't know sounds to me like someone stabbed him in the head...try dropping a butter knife to the ground and make it stick in it...mmmm i don't know...not saying impossible but just mmmm???? hard to imagine someone throwing it

    You don't know the whole story, besides they are 11 yrs old. I still have a scare on my forehead from the bb gun battles we had as kids.

    Haven't decided if charges will be filed, are you freaking serious? Do you not realize what that little idiot done? He could have killed this boy! Stupid!
