It Took a Polish Man Five Years to Notice He’d Been Shot in the Head

The Associated Press reports that a Polish man, who was out celebrating and drunk on the street in Germany, was hit in the back of the head by a stray bullet. Though the bullet was just discovered and removed, the injury happened on New Year’s Eve–five years ago!

The man said that he remembered being hit in the head, but didn’t think much of it at the time. The doctors report that bullet didn’t penetrate the skull and police have concluded that the bullet likely wasn’t meant for the 35-year-old man. From the sounds of it, that must have been some New Year’s bash (I don’t even want to imagine the hangover).
