After taking a boat anchor to the head in an accident about six months ago, Caleb Bennett has finished his recovery and has a clean bill of health.

(SNN) Earlier this year in March, Caleb Bennett went on a fishing trip with his brother and friends, and as he was fixing something in the boat, an anchor became logged in his head.
