Chinese Man Finds Bullet in Brain 23-years After Being Shot (Video)

Wang Tianqing, a farmer from China’s northern Hebei province, who had been suffering from convulsions for more than two decades, discovered his problems were caused by a bullet inside his brain.

Mr Wang got shot in 1988, but back then medical staff could find nothing wrong and gave him an anti-inflammatory.

“I saw a man standing on a hill and thought he’d hit me. I thought I’d been hit by a slingshot,” Mr Wang recalled the incident.

Shortly afterwards Mr Wang began having occasional convulsions, and when they worsened last year, his family decided it was time to get a second opinion.

The Chinese surgeon who removed the bullet said Mr Wang cheated death by a matter of millimetres, reports Sky News.
