    Tale of survival for boy, 10, ripped from womb

    Eli Evans leads normal life after savage start

    Eli Evans, 10, waits for football practice to start Wednesday in Bridgeport, Ill.

    BRIDGEPORT, Ill. - Belting out operatic-sounding songs one moment and doing magic tricks the next, 10-year-old Eli Evans talks of becoming a comedian and football player — no stretch for the 130-pound boy who's already an accomplished ham.

    "That's not him showing off," Sam Evans says, shaking his head as he watches his whirling grandson. "That's all the time."

    Evans can't help but be bemused by the fifth-grader, a sweet, well-adjusted poster child of survival since the savagery that surrounded his arrival.
