So shocking. 90 Day Fiancé star David Toborowsky‘s son Jacob Toborowsky is still recovering after he was accidentally shot in the face by a friend in Louisville, KY last month. David took to Facebook to share an update on his 18-year-old’s recovery and shared a graphic photo of Jacob’s gunshot wound.
“Thank you all once again for the prayers. They do and have been working. Jacob is slowly recovering in Texas,” David wrote in the caption of his son, who looked to be in good spirits despite the fact that the bullet that penetrated his face was still visibly lodged in his right cheek.

After the shooting, Jacob was well enough to tell his older sister Ashley Toborowsky what happened to him, and she relayed the information to local Fox-affiliated television station WDRB. “He pulled the gun out and was waving it around and told [Jacob] and assured him that the safety was on and that there were no bullets in that gun,” Ashley said.
But Jacob’s friend — whose name has been withheld because he is only 16 years old — allegedly managed to accidentally pull the trigger in the tragic incident. Thankfully, Jacob was rushed to the University Hospital on Sunday, Jan. 28 and he was released from the hospital the following day.
“I am shocked, I am sad and I am super angry,” Ashley said, adding that the bullet has also caused emotional damage. “I’m super sad to see him with a bullet hole in his face, and he didn’t deserve that because somebody else wanted to hold a gun.”
Another family source revealed the details of Jacob’s injury. “Jacob has a fractured jaw,” the insider revealed to Radar Online. “The bullet is in the soft tissue of the right cheek. There is a hole in his face.”
Even though Jacob miraculously survived the shooting, he may not ever be able to fully recover from the incident. “He went to the doctor, but the swelling is too bad to take a good look at it,” a source explained to Radar Online. “The doctor said he might need to stay with the bullet in there for the rest of his life. It’s more of a risk taking it out in some cases.”
