PHOTOS: Man With Half a Head Explains How He Lost Most Of His Brain And Skull In A Car Crash

A bad boy who was left with half a head following a dramatic accident has spoken out for the first time – blaming his astonishing appearance on a drink and drugs binge.

Carlos ‘Halfy’ Rodriguez, who also goes by the name Sosa, lost a large portion of his brain and skull in a crash after flying through his car’s windscreen and landing head-first on the road.

In a new video he has used his appearance and story to warn others not to drink and take drugs.

Doctors were forced to cut away large amounts of flesh and bone to help him survive and he has since been able to continue his life in Miami, Florida.

‘I was barred out on drugs. I was driving and I hit a pole and flew out the front window and landed on my head,’ he said in a new warning message on You Tube.

Showing his head to camera he added: ‘And this is how the old boy has come out. That is why it is not good drinking and driving or drugness (sic) and driving. It is no good kids.’

According to the German tabloid Bild he had the accident aged 14.

‘I was with a cousin and a friend stole the car, there was a near-fatal car accident. As the speed was too fast we lost control of the car and crashed,’ he said.

Mr Rodriguez shot to fame two years ago after he was was arrested for allegedly soliciting prostitution.

Miami Police had problems with their paperwork and his forms contained no name and simply the description ‘half a head’.
