I know I whine about living in England -- it's dark, rainy and depressing outside as I type this -- but you would NEVER see an article like this in our local paper. And that's got to be a positive....
JACKSON, Miss. - WAPT.com
Andrea Scott and Sanaa Hill may be alive today because of fast medical attention and the pieces of bullets that are still in their heads, a local neurosurgeon said.
A stray bullet hit 8-year-old Hill in the head while she was inside the Boys & Girls club in December. She's now back in school and doing well.
And Jackson State researcher Andrea Scott is home recovering after a robber shot her twice in the head earlier this month.
Dr. Domenic Esposito, the director of Neurotrauma at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, said a gunshot victim’s chance of survival is greater than ever. He didn't treat Scott or Hill, but he said that he does treat about 50 victims who were shot in the head each year. More than half survive. He said that's because he takes the less is more approach.
