Man Realizes He’s Been Shot In The Head Five Years Later (DETAILS)
A Polish man living in Germany realized he’d been shot in the head five years later! The man was drunk when the shooting occurred and forgot it all together. That is, until doctors discovered a .22 caliber bullet in the back of his head.
According to Reuters, the 35-year-old went to the doctor to have what he believed to be a cyst removed. Upon further inspection, doctors discovered it was actually a bullet lodged in his head.
The man was able to recall that he had been on the receiving end of a blow to the head during a New Years party “in 2004 or 2005,” but couldn’t remember much more because he was “very drunk,” a police spokesman said.
“He told us he remembered having a sore head, but that he wasn’t really one for going to the doctor,” the spokesman said.
The wound eventually healed around the bullet and was not discovered until the man visited the doctor due to reoccurring pain under the lump that had formed.
Police said they were not treating the incident as suspicious as the bullet might have got lodged in the man’s head when a reveler fired a gun in celebration.
“It may have been a shot fired up in the air which entered his head on the way down,” the spokesman said.
The victim is expected to leave the hospital later this week, police said.
