Woman Looks for Popcorn and Finds a Bullet

On December 16, Ashley Smith felt something weird stuck in the roof of her mouth. She went to the restroom to try to pull it out--thinking it was popcorn. Yet, she pulled out a bullet and solved an 11-year mystery in the process.

The Georgia woman was 15-years-old and three months pregnant when she went to visit her grandmother. In an interview with WBLT, she spoke of this incident “We were all hanging out. A guy that lived down the street from us had a gun that he took from his uncle, and he was in the kitchen playing with it. He pulled the trigger and said it wasn’t loaded and I was in the line of fire.”

The bullet hit Ashley. She and her unborn baby have since suffered an aneurysm, two brain and ear surgeries, and an eye surgery. Ashley ultimately went blind in one eye and had to get a prosthetic replacement.

Her baby girl was born with unspecified complications, due to the lack of oxygen she received during the accident. Smith explained, “When the bullet hit, it caused the bullet to go up. It ricochet hit the top of my skull went across my face and this was the stopping point, about the middle of my jaw." Doctors told her the bullet would be forever stuck in her jawbone. Yet, she just removed it and was quite relieved to do so.
