Doctors remove bullet from Chinese woman's skull

A unique operation took place in China. Doctors have removed a three-centimeter-long (1.18-inch-long) bullet from a woman's skull - 64 years after she was shot by Japanese Imperial Army troops, a newspaper reported Tuesday.

Jin Guangying, 77, left hospital on May 3 and is reportedly in good condition following the four-hour operation, the Shanghai Daily said.

"It's a miracle," Zhou Hong, the head of surgery at Renci Hospital in Jin's native province of Jiangsu, was quoted as saying.

"The operation was not that difficult, but it's unbelievable that she was able to survive for such a long time with a bullet in her head," Zhou said.

Jin was 13-years-old in 1943 when she was shot while delivering food to her father, a member of a guerrilla unit fighting Japanese troops that had invaded the region in 1937.

Jin survived under her mother's care, but the bullet apparently went undetected.

Jin suffered from periodic headaches and fits that sometimes left her babbling and foaming at the mouth. Fearing she might have a tumor, her family arranged for a scan that revealed the presence of the now-rusty and patina green bullet, it said.
