Nine-year-old Cesar Pena wasn’t expected to survive after he was hit in the head by a stray bullet nearly a year ago. But Cesar defied the odds and is now healing at home with his family – despite the fact that the bullet is still lodged in his head.

Doctors have not removed the bullet because they said doing so could be deadly, KVOA News 4 in Tucson, Arizona reported.

As a result of the shooting, Cesar suffers short-term memory loss and his left side is slightly paralyzed.

"He couldn't hold his head,” Cesar's mother Lizett Pena, told the TV station. “I had to re-teach him how to eat, how to talk."

Yea they never remove bullets from the head as it is highly likely that it will just cause major damage.

My uncle survived a gun shot to the head. The bullet actually pushed its way out of his skull. The doctors said it's a miracle as they've never seen it happen before.
