Woman gets shot in head by husband, makes tea afterwards

A Mississippi woman not only survived being shot in the head but made herself some tea afterward. Officials said the 47-year-old woman was still hospitalized on Friday after being wounded by her husband. He fatally shot himself. But the woman was expected to recover fully.

The sheriff of Jackson County, Miss., Mike Byrd, said the woman's husband shot her early Tuesday in a home. A witness called sheriff's deputies, who arrived to find the woman talking and coherent.

The sheriff said she made herself some tea and offered a deputy something to drink before being rushed to the hospital. Byrd said the bullet apparently passed through the woman's head without causing major damage.
