Meet 3 Nigerians who cheated death and survived after getting shot in the head

Surviving a bullet to the head is no easy feat and even scientific research has shown that only five percent of people shot in the head survived. Only three percent of the survivors can leave normal lives while the remaining could end up having permanent brain damage. 

Doctors who have studied victims who were shot in severe areas like the brain were able to reveal why people can survive even after a headshot. The reason why the Nigerians who will be listed below, survived the headshot depends on three things. The speed of the bullet, if the bullet passes through one or both sides of the brain and if the bullet exits the head.

Doctors concluded that people who were hit on one side of the brain were more likely to survive, especially if the bullet misses special organs and blood vessels in the brain. People who were shot with pistols at far distances could also survive headshot.

Contact headshots (when the gun nozzle is touching the victim's head) or shots from guns like AK-47 will instantly kill a victim. A bullet that exits the head and doesn't dance around the head will cause less damage and could increase the survival chances of the victims.

The information above should give you a clear idea of why the Nigerians below headshots survived headshots.

The 3 Nigerians who survived the headshots are listed below

 1. Nollywood actress - Angela Okorie
