"Miracle" - mortally wounded soldier fully recovers

"Miracle" - mortally wounded soldier fully recovers
Dr. Aaron Lerner 26 December 2007

Sarit Rosenblum and Dan Evan report in today's edition of Yediot Ahronot
that Private Avi Dorfman has fully recovered after shards of a Qassam rocket
fired from Gaza entered his brain last September.

Dorfman was among the 69 soldiers wounded in the attack on the Israel
Defense Forces camp in Zikim, south of Ashkelon, where the new recruits were
staying in tents.

Dorfman, nicknamed "Genius" by his friends, was serving in the IDF after
declining the offer of a scholarship at UCLA.

Doctors first classified Dorfman as mortally wounded. He was unconscious
for three weeks.

"Everyone was certain he would remain with serious damage but it is not
possible to identify any sign of the serious damage he sustained. His
intellectual ability and cognitive function is completely restored," his
doctors report.

Dorfman lost his right eye - the entrance point of the shards.
