Headache Proves Bullet In Brain

Rochester Journal, March 8, 1937

This is an unique story that you'd think there'd be plenty of news coverage on but this is the lone article I could find on the matter. The matter being that 30-year-old Albert Ridge, an Eloise Hospital worker, was shot in the head while driving in late February of 1937.

He heard the shot, felt stunned and pulled over for a minute, then recovered sufficiently enough that only a lingering headache led him to the hospital clinic for a checkup. What physicians found in an x-ray was that he had indeed been shot in the head during the incident.
