——– A Shot at Suicide Saves Terminally Ill Man ——–
TEXAS – Talk about your luck. A Texas man who only had two months to live due to an inoperable and fatal brain tumor decided to make the sentence a little shorter by taking his own life. “Steve Huey” reportedly wrote a suicide note and then placed the gun to his head and shot. A few hours later,
Huey’s friends found him on the floor in a pool of blood and called an ambulance. The amazing thing is that Huey not only survived the gunshot to the head, he actually shot the tumor off of his brain. Doctors say this is a 254 million to one shot, and friends are now encouraging Huey to play the lottery. Huey is currently writing a book and is planning a book signing tour. Also in the works, a movie based on his story. “I am a very lucky guy and I plan to turn this miracle into some serious cash for myself,” said Huey in an exclusive interview.
