Mississippi woman makes cup of tea after being shot in head

BEIJING, April 20 (Xinhuanet)– A Mississippi woman astonished police officers when she offered them drinks and made herself tea after being shot in the forehead by her husband.

    Tammy Sexton, 47, survived miraculously after a bullet from a .38-calibre handgun struck her squarely in the forehead, passed through her skull and exited through the back of her head.

    She is expected to make a full recovery, while her husband shot himself dead after the attack on his wife. 

    “There’s no way she should be alive other than a miracle from God,” said Sheriff Mike Byrd of Jackson County, Mississippi.

    Byrd said, when the officer got there she said, “What’s going on?” She was holding a rag on her head and talking. She was conscious, but she was confused about what had happened.

    “She had made herself some tea and offered the officers something to drink,” he said.

    Her husband Donald Ray Sexton was put on probation for six months on April 9 for domestic violence.

    He showed up at their home in rural Jackson County in Southeast Mississippi about 12:10 a.m. Tuesday and confronted his wife as a relative ran next door to call police, the sheriff said.

    “She was at her bed, and he shot her right in the head,” Byrd said. “Then he went out on the back porch and shot himself.”
