The man who held the Guinness World Record for living the longest
with a bullet in his head has died at age 103.
The Modesto Bee newspaper reports that William Lawlis Pace died in
his sleep at a California nursing home on Monday - 94 and a half years after his
older brother accidentally shot him with their father's .22 calibre rifle in 1917.
Pace learned he had been crowned the world record holder in the
category of unwanted cranial ammunition acquisition in 2006.
His son told a newspaper last year that doctors in Pace's native Texas left the
bullet in place because they worried that surgery might cause brain damage.
The injury damaged one of his eyes but did not prevent Pace
from working as a cemetery custodian.
