9-Year-Old Given Slim Chance of Survival After Brain Bleed Makes ‘Miracle’ Recovery

(USTIMESPOST) – A soccer-mad boy barely surviving a brain hemorrhage looks forward to kicking a ball again after a ‘miraculous’ recovery.

The boy, grandson of the late Everton defender Terry Darracott, had felt a sharp pain in his head before passing out and being taken to hospital.

He needed more than eight hours of surgery. CONTINUE
