Ripley’s Believe It Or Snot

By Wyatt Earp | January 15, 2011

Apparently the name “Sangermano” means “lucky bastard” in Italian.

[Darco] Sangermano was hit in the temple by a stray bullet while wandering around the famously rambunctious city during its new year celebrations, which involve fireworks and occasional gunshots.

As the sky exploded with various displays, he was struck by a stray .22 calibre bullet in the side of the head, behind his right eye. Although it lodged in his nasal passage, it appears the gods were on his side, as the bullet did no serious damage.

Bleeding profusely, he was rushed to hospital in the first minutes of the new year. But while waiting to be seen by a doctor, the patient astonished doctors by sneezing and propelling the bullet out through his right nostril.

The worst part? He wiped the snot-covered bullet into his shirt sleeve.

    First time in Naples Italy, I saw a guy ” clear his air passageway” by blowing his snot right on the street. The bullet does not surprise me…
