Gesundheit – Shot in the Head, man sneezes bullet through his Nose
Not only did Darco Sangermano, 28, survive being shot in the head by a stray bullet, he managed to sneeze the projectile out of his nostril.
Sangermano, was in the notoriously raucous city of Naples with his girlfriend when he was hit by a stray .22 caliber bullet in the temple during New Year’s Eve festivities, according to the Daily Telegraph.
The bullet reportedly pierced the right side of his head behind his eye socket and became lodged in his nasal passage.
He was rushed to a hospital emergency ward shortly after midnight. While waiting for doctors, he sneezed the bullet out of his right nostril. Two others were hit by bullets on the same evening, while another person died after being hit by a stray round during the festivities.
Doctors operated to remove bone splinters in his eye, but he was able to return to his hometown of Turin.
“He was a very lucky man, he could have been killed,” Dr. Sid Berrone said. “The bullet went through his temple, behind his eye, entered the nasal cavity and then became lodged in his nostril before he sneezed it out. Amazing.”
Gesundheit! They sure know how to ring in the New Year in Italy.
