Brazilian Woman Survives 6 Shots to Head

A woman was released from the hospital a day after she was shot in the head six times in an attack police blamed on her ex-husband, Brazilian media reported Saturday.

Patricia Goncalves Pereira, a 21-year-old housewife, was shot Friday after an altercation with her ex-husband, who was upset because she refused to get back together with him, Globo TV reported.

“I know this was a miracle,” Pereira told the TV network. “Now I just want to extract the bullets and live my life.”

Doctors could not explain how Pereira survived the attack. The .32-caliber bullets didn’t break through her skull and didn’t even need to be immediately extracted, doctors said. Pereira also was shot once in the hand.

Police said the ex-husband was still at large, Globo TV reported. – forbes

Cat Stevens, writer of the song, “I’m looking for a hard headed woman“, was unavailable for comment. Neither was Claude Demetrius who wrote the other hard headed woman song, the one made popular by Elvis.
