After undergoing what some are calling a "miracle" surgery, a 16-month-old from Australia has survived a wreck that pulled his neck from his head internally.

According to the Huffington Post, Jackson Taylor was riding with his mother, Rylea, and sister recently when their car crashed head-on into a vehicle going 70 mph. Jackson suffered an "internal dislocation" in the wreck, which broke vertebrae in the toddler's collar bone and neck.

"A lot of children wouldn't survive that injury in the first place, and if they did and they were resuscitated, they may never move or breathe again," spinal surgeon Dr. Geoff Askin told 7 News Melbourne.

But Askin and his team helped Jackson beat those odds. In a six-hour surgery at a Brisbane hospital, doctors used part of Jackson's rib and wire to reattach the vertebrae, AOL reports.

Jackson has to wear a brace known as a halo for eight weeks, but he is expected to recover fully.
