An article claims that a Florida woman went to the hospital with a .38 bullet wound, days after she sustained it because she didn't realize that it was a bullet wound, in the first place. According to her account, she was at an outdoor cafe with friends on the evening of The 4th, when she heard what she thought was a firecracker, followed by a pain in her thigh. She thought that she had been struck by something associated with a firework. After several days of pain, she finally went to the hospital, where doctors discovereded a .38 bullet in her thigh. Because of its proximity to her femoral artery, the bullet will stay where it is. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/07/10/florida-woman-discovers-was-shot-days-after-incident/ Allegedly, someone had fired a revolver into the air around the time that the fireworks were going off, and the bullet came down into her thigh. This is what the police believe had happened. Nevertheless, this just doesn't sound right. First of all, if she had had a bullet penetrate so deeply, I very much doubt that she would have mistaken it for just some debris from a firecracker. Secondly, such a wound would have caused so much trauma that regardless of what she had thought the reason was for it, she would have gone to have it treated. My suspicion is that she or someone she knows was being stupid with a revolver and had a negligent discharge or some other irresponsible thing happen with it. From there, she conspired to protect all involved from trouble by hoping that if she left the wound alone long enough that it would heal. When it didn't heal, she had to come up with another story to cover up why she didn't go to the hospital earlier, all while making sure that responsibility was properly deflected. Thoughts and assessments?
