Man Sneezes out Bullet

Darco Sangermano, 28, was in Naples during that city’s New Year’s Eve festivities. He was shot in the head with a .22 caliber bullet. Later, at the hospital, he sneezed it out:

The bullet, a .22 caliber, entered the right side of his head, passed behind his eye through the socket, hit a bone in his nose and lodged itself in his right nostril.

Covered in blood, but still conscious, Sangermano then sneezed out the bullet, and apart from a headache, told doctors he felt fine.[...]

He needed surgery just to clean up the wound and get rid of the bone fragments.

“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.”
