A  13-year-old boy is recovering after this six-inch screw pierced his skull.

Darius Foreman's frightening ordeal began while building a tree house on Saturday at his home in Salisbury.

He fell from a branch, knocking over a wooden board with the screw in it. The board and the screw slammed down onto his head.

He was air lifted to John Hopkins Hospital where doctors say he was just a millimeter away from bleeding to death.      

Darius survived surgery  and  kept the screw that nearly ended his life.
