Got A Bullet In Your Head? Just Sneeze It Out!
January 14, 2011

This is unbelievable... A man was out with his girlfriend in Naples on New Year's Eve. Beautiful Naples. Midnight. Fireworks. Very romantic. That is, until a stray bullet hit him in the side of the head and lodged behind his right eye.

He was rushed to hospital. While he was waiting for a doctor, the most amazing thing happened. He sneezed out the bullet!

One question: If he had a bullet in his head, why did he have to wait for a doctor at all?

Doctors plan to do laser eye surgery to repair part of his eye. Here's a video reenacting the whole thing. It's not in English, but you get the point.
