Meet Halfy…

Halfy is what his friends call him. And there’s a whole story about why his nickname is this. Let’s start with a photo of this American guy.

Carlos ‘Halfy’ Rodriguez

Yes, the nickname is self-explanatory now that you have seen the photo. But guess what? He was not born this way. In fact, one night he was on drugs, and while he was driving he hit a pole, flew out of the window and landed on his head. He’s doing well, and until this day, he has not undergone any cosmetic surgery. It seems to me, that he likes his new look.

After reading this story, I was curious to read about other similar stories.

Meet Steve Gator, a twenty six year old guy from Essex (England) who had his skull crushed. He was attacked by two teenage thugs on his way home after work. Very unlucky. Unfortunately because of this incident, he is suffering from a lifelong disability.

Another victim back in 2008, by the name of Alan Hind, twenty eight year old, also had an accident where he shattered his skull. It all happened when he fell approximately seven meters while working on his roof. On top of that he suffered from kidney damage and he turned deaf from his left ear. To this day he still suffers from trauma and memory loss.

Hou Guozhu; Chinese, at the age of eight, had a large portion of his head removed. He was a healthy boy just like his twin brother, but when he was three, in the year 2000, he started to suffer from periodic spasms of is left limb. His family traveled to all the local hospitals for help but this was not enough. Six years later his father afforded to take the boy to the Beijing Brain Institute were he was diagnosed with a rare inflammatory disease of the brain, know a Rasmussen Encephalitis. He underwent four operations, and for this treatment his family had to sell almost all their possessions, including the house. The father also turned to the media to help with donations. In 2011, the kid finally had the cosmetic surgery done; in which a titanium alloy plate was implanted.

These three victims as can be seen from the pictures to this article, have undergone cosmetic surgery.

Enjoy life, and make sure you don’t lose half of your head! 😉
