(Scroll down for video) A family in Australia, is grateful that doctors were able to save their son's life.

Surgeons in New South Wales, have successfully reattached the head to the spine of a young child after being internally decapitated in a car accident.

16-month-old Jackson Taylor, his mother and 9-year-old sister, were traveling in a car about 68 miles per hour when they collided with another car.

An airbag protected the mother and her young daughter, but the force of the collision caused Jackson's head to be thrown violently forward.

His collarbone and other bones in his neck were broken, and his skull separated from his spine.

A team of experts led by Dr. Geoff Askin, worked for six hours in what has been described as a miracle operation.

“A lot of children wouldn’t survive that injury in the first place, and if they are resuscitated, they may never move or breathe again,” spinal surgeon Geoff Askin said.

Jackson will wear a specially equipped halo brace for eight weeks while the tissues and nerves heal, but he is expected to make a full recovery.

A man was horrified when an officer stopped and held him at gunpoint for no reason.

The Florida corrections officer was arrested after holding the man at gunpoint when his car had broken down on the side of the road.

Martin County Sheriff’s corrections officer Parker Jason Henry told police that he suspected the man on the side of the road acted as a lookout for a group of people who had an altercation earlier that afternoon.

However, it turned out that the victim, Emmanuel Leconte, was not the man he was looking for.

The incident took place on Saturday night in Port St. Lucie, when Leconte was heading home to his mother and his car overheated.

He stopped at the side of the road before Henry pulled over and held him at gunpoint. According to Leconte, Henry pointed a gun at him, and told him to get out of the vehicle and get on the ground.

Leconte said that he became extremely fearful because he thought he was going to get shot, robbed or hijacked as Henry did not identify himself as an officer and he was wearing plain clothes.

Leconte managed to call police. Port St. Lucie police officers found that Henry was drunk. Henry also admitted having several beers, according to police.

The corrections officer admitted that he was not been trained to work as a police officer and said that he did not know what to do after Leconte did not follow his orders so he activated his laser on the gun and pointed it at the victim.

Henry was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and false imprisonment.
