Miracle - Man Survives After Bullet In The Brain

Wang Tian Qing, a farmer from Zhangjiakouin city in northern China's Hebei province has been suffering from epilepsy for more than twenty years.

Back in 1988, Wang was knocked unconscious on his way home by what he thought was a blow to the head... "I thought I'd been hit by a slingshot... I saw a man standing on a hill and thought he'd hit me".

After waking up in hospital, Wang was given a course of anti-inflammatories and sent home. Not long after, he started having epileptic seizures - which grew worse over the next twenty-three years.

Recently, Wang visited the hospital for treatment for his epileptic seizures, and doctors were amazed to discover (through a CAT scan) a two-centimetre rusted bullet embedded in his head.

According to Neurosurgeon, Wang Zhi Ming, the survival rate for being shot in the head would usually be one in several thousand - but in Wang Tian Qing's case, the bullet missed his brain's main veins and did not injure his brainstem.
