A 10-year-old boy suffered extremely gruesome injuries after a jet ski accident in Dubai, which saw a jet ski crash into his head.

Daniel Clamens was on a banana boat ride with a friend on Al Mamzar boat beach when they fell out into the water.

Clamens was then struck by a jet ski, which was allegedly being ridden by an off-duty police officer.

The incident occurred in June 2011, leaving the child with fractures to his cheek and eye socket, along with a 6-inch scar across his head.

Daniel was saved by his 13-year-old neighbor Peter, who dragged him back to the boat.

The man on the jet ski allegedly returned to the scene briefly to see the boy, showed signs of grief, and then left before the ambulance came.

Sharjah Police arrested a 23-year-old Emirati policeman from Dubai and his cousin as they drove off with a jet ski hitched to their Nissan Patrol truck.

The two men were both charged with mistakenly injuring the child and with violating regulations governing sea vessels by not registering the jet ski.

Clamens was rushed to Rashid Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit where he was treated for the wound on the left side of his face, as well as having a metal plate inserted into his face. 


The surgery left Clamens with some issues, as he was unable to close his left eye, as well as having difficulty opening his mouth.


The surgery was discovered to have some errors by doctors at Miami Children’s Hospital in the US, as one of the bones had been misplaced during the procedure. The American doctors performed five procedures on the boy, including the repositioning of his eye and the removal of the implant from the previous surgery.

Stressing About Stress? Study Says It Makes Women Nicer, Men Meaner

Finally, a scientifically-backed reason women make better bosses: we respond in way nicer ways to stress. A University of Vienna neuroscience lab found that stressed-out men, in an effort to conserve resources, become more self-centered, more egocentric and less empathetic. The women, however, react in a completely opposite way, becoming “prosocial” and better able to […]

The Pain Of Being In Love With Someone You Can Never Be With

Love is a tricky thing. It varies in intensity and in the specificity of emotions. It is sometimes the most beautiful thing in the world and, at other times, it’s the most horrid thing we’ve ever come face-to-face with. It’s odd how one thing could be the cause of so many contrary feelings. But that’s […]
