Bullet in Foot X Ray


bizarre x ray

This incredible X-ray of a bullet lodged between the bones of the big and second toes dates back to the Boer War (1899-1902). The Mauser bullet managed to become lodged in this soldiers foot without hitting any of his bones. It is not known if the bullet was succesfully removed.

This bizarre X ray was made by the soldier placing his foot above a photographic plate and the photographer used an open electric discharge tube to emit the X-rays.
