Croatian Man Has Been Alive With Bullet In His Head For 38 Years
A Croatian man has been alive with a riffle bullet in his head for 38 years.

Sandor Crevek was accidentally shot by his cousin while celebrating a wedding in 1971.

The doctors then said that the bullet was too close to the brain to remove.

Now, the retired butcher, from Suza in Croatia, has to undergo four different types of medication to cope with paralysis to his left hand and foot caused by the wounds.

Crevek, who became a victim of the tradition of marking the marriage ceremony with volley of gunfire at Croatian weddings, does not want to blame his cousin.

"I never even asked my cousin Istvan about it. I just wanted to keep the family ties," the Sun quoted him as telling local newspaper 24 Sata.

He added: "I didn't want there to be any bad feeling."
