Reddit User Recalls Odd, Near Death Experience On NYE

On New Year's Eve, "IzzyBlue" was sitting on the beach with her boyfriend. She thought she heard people setting off fireworks early, but she felt an odd, burning sensation like "hot liquid metal" on her head. It took her a few moments to realize that she was grazed by a random bullet. Just inches closer, and she could have lost her life.

She shared what happened in a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" forum. She and her boyfriend were in a tourist area in Palm Beach, Florida around 9:45 p.m. on December 29th. They heard a series of popping sounds and thought it was fireworks. Then, the bullet grazed her head removing pieces of her hair and scalp. She said it felt like "being punched by hot metal" and left a burning feeling. She wrote:

“When the blood started pouring down my face, I knew I had been shot. The physical pain wasn’t the worst part—after a minute or so the blood had filled my eyes, and I was completely blinded.

Everything was white, and I remember thinking, maybe this was dying, maybe everything just goes white. Or maybe there was a bullet lodged in a part of my brain that helps me see, and I might go blind forever…”

IzzyBlue needed eight stitches and was released from the hospital soon after being treated. Police believe the shooting was random. IzzyBlue believes the shooter was probably aiming at a nearby sign.

She went on to write “If I could speak to my shooter, I would simply tell him, that I forgave him. And I appreciated the gift he has given me, of complete gratefulness for how precious my life is— like I have never felt before.”
