A 9-year-old boy who hit the eye of a toy game six years ago must have the organ removed after his friend shot a Nerf gun on it and injured it further.
Taylor-Jay Ravicini in Swansea, Wales, was only 3 years old when the first freak accident occurred.
Doctor saved his eye, but the unfortunate schoolchild’s mother is now collecting to buy him a special prosthetic eye after a Nerf gun hit him in the same eye in August.
“I was there with my three children and everything just happened in a flash”, said his 35-year-old mother.
“What is the risk of an accident that happens twice in the same eye?”
“I was down and I heard a devastating scream and my heart fell, I could not even go to see him, I sent my partner I knew something had happened. “
” Taylor’s eye was full of blood and it caused a build of pressure. The doctor told us that he risked losing sight in both eyes unless we removed the injured. “
She is now hoping to get enough money for a convincing prosthetic eye after some students started tumbling Taylor.
I really do not want people to think I’m a bad mom, “she said.
” I’m constantly worried about him and what’s happening now has just been a great emotional roller coaster. “
” I hope people understand how much he needs this prosthetic eye. “
