A teenager is recovering after falling and impaling himself on a set of deer antlers in Carter Lake, Iowa.

The grandmother of 16-year-old Todd Reynolds says the teen was climbing through a window in her home Wednesday after locking himself out when he fell onto the antlers, which stabbed him in the back and just missed the boy's spine.

The grandmother, Jeanne Reynolds, says the antlers were on the floor. She had saved them from a deer that her car crashed into some years ago.

Emergency room doctors removed the antlers Wednesday. The teen is out of the hospital and expected him to recover.
