NBC LA reports …
Carranza was just a few feet away. She survived a gunshot to the chest, but the the bullet left a scar and deflated the implant.
“She’s just one lucky woman,” Dr. Ashkan Ghavami told the LA Times. “I saw the CT scan. The bullet fragments were millimeters from her heart and her vital organs. Had she not had the implant, she might not be alive today.”
Something does not seem right about this story. I wonder if she hit by just a fragment. I would imagine that the hydrostatic shock from a bullet ripping through a gel implant would have a devastating impact on the surrounding tissue.
Gentlemen: please be considerate and don’t drive away my female readers away with jokes at their expense!
