No biggie: Serbian goalkeeper plays on with a bullet in his head

He just thought he’d walk it off.


An amateur goalkeeper in Serbia played a full 90 minutes — though complaining of a headache — before discovering that he had a bullet lodged in his head.

Dusko Krtalica, 51, thought he was feeling off due to earlier hitting his head on the butt of the post while playing for local side in Sarajevo.

After the game his condition deteriorated and he was rushed to hospital and he’s now said to be in a stable condition.  Police think the bullet fell from the sky after nearby wedding guests shot into the air in celebration.
