London, England, September 30, 2008--An x-ray of a 16-year-old with a knife stuck in his head was released by London's Metropolitan Police to underscore their message that knife crime is dangerous.

The teenager was stabbed outside a supermarket last November during a failed robbery attempt. Two of his friends were also wounded. The teen has since recovered, though still requires regular hospital checkups, the BBC reported.

The 17-year-old attacker was found guilty of attempted murder.
