Do you know why and how Theodore Roosevelt spoke to voters for an hour and a half with a bullet in his chest?
When Theodore Roosevelt ran for president in 1912, he was shot during one of his meetings with voters. The bullet hit the chest, piercing the glasses case and the thick manuscript of the speech he wanted to give. However, Roosevelt did not leave his seat - he drew the public's attention to the fact that he had just been shot, and then spoke for an hour and a half. The hunting experience helped to understand that the wound is not dangerous for life - since he did not cough up blood, it means that the bullet did not pierce the lung.
Subsequently, it was confirmed that the bullet entered the chest by 76 mm, but removing it was even more risky than leaving it as it is, and Roosevelt wore it all his life.
