Man Hit By Stray Bullet Two Miles Away From Police Firing Range

Man Hit By Stray Bullet Two Miles Away From Police Firing Range

A Romanian man was lucky to escape with his life after a bullet shot at a firing range two miles away hit him in the head.

Well, whether he was lucky or not is actually debatable, given that he still ended up with a bullet wedged in his skull despite being - for all intents and purposes - nowhere near the firing range.

The unfortunate 22-year-old victim was minding his own business and getting out of his car some distance away from danger, or so he thought, when he was struck by a stray bullet from a police range in the southern Romanian town of Targu Carbunesti.

Because he was a fair way away from where the shot was discharged, the bullet no longer had the power to fully enter his brain, but that doesn't mean that it didn't get stuck a decent way into his skull.

Let's be honest, it's still not ideal, is it?

The man was rushed off to hospital, but upon arrival it was determined that surgery couldn't be performed immediately because of the risks involved.

So, he went off to another hospital where the resident specialists managed to safely remove the bullet.

He then told police that he was alighting his car on a public road when the incident occurred. The man said that he felt something strike his head.

Yep, he sure did.

This happened at exactly the time that some police officers were honing their firing skills and techniques on the nearby range.

By the looks of things, one of them needs a lot more practise.

Alin Ivan, a public relations representative from the Gendarmes Inspectorate - a military police force in Romania - said: "More than a hundred gendarmes took part in this planned shooting. Currently, I can't tell you more details."

That's fine - we've got most of the details we need, courtesy of some frankly ridiculous photographs.

In defence of the folk who operate the firing range, they do warn people in the surrounding areas when one of these sorts of shooting classes is taking place.

However, exactly what you can do about getting pinged in the head by a random bullet from two miles away isn't immediately clear.

The training facility - which is based in a former landfill site - also includes some officers training to use huge machine guns that can fire rounds more than three kilometres.

However, from local reports, we can't be exactly sure as to whether all of the correct precautions were being taken in this instance.
