Cunningham’s experience happened Saturday, Sept. 8 when yellow jackets attacked him in a tree house and he tumbled from the tree, landing on the skewer. The skewer completely missed his eye, brain, spinal cord and major blood vessels and doctors think he could recover completely. (Shannon Miller via AP)
