Beauty is...the Girl With Her Own Skull in Her Stomach

Former Miss Idaho, Jamie Hilton, went fishing with her husband one summer day in Hell's Canyon, only to suffer a fall, hitting her head on a large boulder.

When she was pulled from the water she had no pulse and was not breathing. After being rushed to a medical facility they discovered severe brain swelling and cut away a quarter of her skull, storing it in her abdomen for the next forty two days until Hilton was well enough to have it replaced.


  1. When I first saw this I thought, "Yuck" but then I realized what an amazingly brave woman she is!!

  2. Wow! The miracle of modern science! That's amazing!
