Bullet Enters Head Through Eye Socket And Lodges Behind Brain

Chorlton, United Kingdom – A CT scan reveals a bullet that entered Peter Hesford’s skull while he was in his garden. Police are working on a theory that a gunman may have fired a shot in the air from a few streets away only for the bullet to land in Mr Hesford’s head as he looked up.

Full Story – HERE

Lucky he’s alive!  The bullet must have just coasted along the top of the inside of his skull to end up at it’s final resting place.

His speech is slurred, his memory has deteriorated and he spends most of the time sleeping.

Hopefully he makes a full recovery.  It would be a shame if he didn’t all because of someone not following one of the cardinal rules of knowing your backstop!  Maybe the shooter was aiming at something solid, but people need to take into account where the bullet will go if they miss.

There’s a man in a pub somewhere, laughing nervously as he hears about it on the telly.

I would say that he’s really unlucky to catch a stray bullet in the eye, but I guess he is lucky that it didn’t kill him.

Doesn’t that bullet look too big to be a .22? Regardless, I wonder if they’ll be able to find who fired the shot. It looks like this took place in an urban area, so I would think nobody would have any business discharging a firearm at all, let alone up in the air (like at a squirrel or something). If it happened in a rural area it might be a slightly different story. I suppose I can imagine someone shooting up in a tree at something and the bullet being deflected away. It sounds like the odds of this happening the way it did are amazingly small – the article even says if he had had his head turned the bullet probably would have just bounced off of his skull. Terribly bad luck that he happened to be facing the bullet and it happened to hit him in the eye. I’ll bet an inch higher and it would have bounced off his forehead, and an inch lower it would maybe have lodged in his cheek.

It does look kind of large for a .22, but maybe since the bullet is so dense the size got a bit distorted by the xray?
