Brazilian woman survives 6 shots to head Sat Nov 11, 5:45 PM ET

SAO PAULO, Brazil - 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.

Wow, normally you can at least expect some internal spalling of the skull. must have been a very short barrel and weak load.

I've heard of some hard headed women, but I admit she takes the award as the hardest.

That is crazy, must have been a bad angle or something for them not to penetrate the skull.
