On This Day

Singer Stevie Wonder was almost killed when he was hit by a log that smashed through the windshield of the car he was riding in. His cousin, who was driving the car on a back road in South Carolina (US), swerved around a logging truck to pass it but instead hit the truck and dislodged the log that hit Wonder. With a broken skull and severe brain contusion, Wonder was comatose for almost a day but eventually made a full recovery, except for losing his sense of smell.
