Police and doctors hailed the survival of Tammy Sexton, 47, as miraculous after a bullet from a .38-calibre handgun struck her squarely in the forehead, passed through her skull and exited through the back of her head. She is expected to make a full recovery, while her husband shot himself dead after the attack on his wife.
But law enforcement officers in Jackson County, Mississippi, were also astonished that Mrs Sexton offered them tea when they arrived at her home after the shooting.
Sheriff Mike Byrd said: "When the officer got there she said, 'What's going on?' She was holding a rag on her head and talking. She was conscious, but she was confused about what had happened.
"She had made herself some tea and offered the officer something to drink.
"There's no way she should be alive other than a miracle from God. You just don't hear of something like this. Somebody gets shot in the head and they're dead."

Sounds like something out of a horror flick.
“They don’t know they’re dead...”
Only in her case, she refused to BE dead!
Like I always say, if God wants you dead, nobody can save you. If he wants you alive, nobody can kill you.
Missed her brain completely it seems. I have an ex for whom that would be a very likely possibility!
“When she sat the cup of tea down in front of the officers a large pit bull jumped out of the cup and killed everyone on the block....”
You were married to her, too?
“But law enforcement officers in Jackson County, Mississippi, were also astonished that Mrs Sexton offered them tea when they arrived at her home after the shooting. “
Amazing this happened!!!
However, this being from the UK... and this woman being from Mississippi...
They are putting their own idea of tea into this situation. She more than likely did not make herself a “cup of tea”, but a glass of Sweet Iced Tea, which is common in this area. And it is also common to offer any visiter a glass of Iced Tea.
As Dolly Parton said in Steel Magnolias, Sweet Ice Tea. It’s the housewine of the south!
Just a correction there.
I say: "If it ain't your time, it ain't your time."
Justice was served. These POS take out everyone along with themselves. Go off yourselves, cowards, and leave the rest alone.
maybe the force from the tea parties was strong in her
You were both married to my former boss? What are the chances.
These is not the first time this has happened to someone.
There are less dangerous ways to brainwash someone into voting for “zero”.
My ex had that kind of luck.
I don’t think I want any more information there...
Wow, apparently we used to work together...
