Italian Man Shot in Head Sneezes Out Bullet

An Italian man shot in the head amazed doctors by sneezing out the bullet and is expected to make a full recovery with no side effects.
Darco Sangermano was hit by a stray bullet in front of his shocked girlfriend as they celebrated New Year's Eve in Naples and he was immediately rushed to hospital.
While there and amazingly still conscious, the 28-year-old labourer sneezed out the .22 calibre bullet and told doctors apart from a strong headache he felt no other pain.

The bullet entered the right side of his head, went through the muscle, breaking the temporal bone, passed behind his eye through the socket, hit a bone in his nose and was then stuck in his nostril before being sneezed out.
The incident happened in the southern city of Naples, which has a reputation for lively end of year celebrations involving revellers firing live ammunition.
Mr Sangermano was one of three people hit by bullets during festivities and one person was also killed after being hit by a stray round as he watched fireworks with his family in a suburb on the outskirts of the city.
After a check up Mr Sangermano was discharged from hospital and allowed to return home to Turin with his girlfriend where his doctor recommended surgery to check the wound.
