Did scarf help stop stray bullet? Shiloh woman OK after being struck in head

News Journal (Central Ohio)

SHILOH -- A simple white scarf may have helped to save a 71-year-old Shiloh woman's life Monday.

Mary Keesy was taken to MedCentral/ Mansfield Hospital shortly after 11 a.m. Monday, after a bullet from a .22-caliber rifle struck the top of her head.

Keesy said she feels lucky to be alive.

"The bullet skidded about four and a half inches and then penetrated through the skin, but I didn't feel any pain," Keesy said. "I had just this thin scarf on my head, but the doctors said it probably had a lot to do with saving me."
