Doctors find bullet in head of man thought to be drunk in Adana
Doctors found on Dec. 17 a bullet in the head of a man who was diagnosed with alcohol intoxication two days earlier in the southern province of Adana.

Following the examination at the medical center, he was sent home, diagnosed with blackout due to alcohol intoxication. But his state remained unchanged in the following two days.
His worried parents then took him to the Çukurova University Balcalı Hospital. During examinations at the hospital, it was detected that a bullet had hit him in the head. He was later given an immediate treatment.
The hospital staff notified the police forces about the incident.

The police evaluated that O.Ç. might have gotten injured because of a ricochet bullet. The investigation, however, is continuing.
