In October 2013, a 20 year old Albanian man shot his eye out by shooting himself through the head with a .22 caliber revolver during a game of Russian Roulette. Against the odds, he survived.
According to the police, the victim was found lying on the floor in a drunken state, after he was abandoned by another player and a woman who observed the “game”. If you can call Russian Roulette a game.
The Department of Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Florence said in a report the patient underwent numerous surgeries during his 30 day hospital stay. The entry wound was at the level of the right inferior border of the mandible, and the exit wound at the level of the frontotemporal region. The bullet passed through the head from the left, through the floor of the mouth, the left maxillary bone, and the left orbital cavity, and left on the right with traumatic orbital exenteration and cerebral frontal hernia.
