RIO DE JANEIRO- Authorities in Brazil says a 28-year-old woman came within half an inch of her life when she was accidentally shot in the mouth with a spear-gun harpoon. The Rio De Janeiro State Health Department says her husband was cleaning his spear gun when it went off, sending the harpoon into her cervical spine. Elisangela Borborema Rosa was rushed to a hospital where a neurosurgeon says the spear came with a half inch of killing her but he expects her to make a full recovery.
