Doctors missed something when they patched up this teen’s face

After fainting and colliding face first into a window, a Spanish teen was patched up at a hospital and sent on his way.
However, four weeks later, he presented to another ED complaining of pain on chewing and trouble opening his mouth for the previous month.
