Woman miraculously survives after being shot in the mouth with harpoon gun by her husband

A 28-year-old Brazilian woman has miraculously survived after being accidentally shot in the mouth by her husband with a harpoon gun.
Elisangela Borborema Rosa's husband was cleaning his spear gun when it went off, firing a harpoon that hit her cervical spine.
Mrs Rosa, 28, was rushed to hospital and underwent emergency surgery to remove the blade after the incident in the coastal city of Arraial do Cabo.
Neurosurgeon Allan da Costa said the harpoon came within 1cm of killing her, but expects her to make a full recovery.
A police spokeswoman in Arrial do Cabo said officers were looking into the case.
"Everything indicates it was an accident, but we are investigating. We don't think the husband tried to kill her," she said.
"But once she fully recovers we will be able to question her and get a clearer picture of what happened."
