CNN Reporter Who Watched Thai Militant Get Shot in the Head Discusses What It’s Like to Almost Get Shot In The Head


So, maybe you heard, but a writer for the New York Times was interviewing a Thai militant leader when he got shot in the head. Like this:

He was shot during an interview with a reporter for The New York Times about 7 p.m., one hour after the military announced the start of a blockade and cut off electricity and water to a tent city of thousands of protesters. The reporter, who was two feet away and facing the general, heard a loud bang similar to that of a firecracker.

The general fell to the ground, his eyes wide open, and protesters took his apparently lifeless body to a hospital, screaming his nickname: “Seh Daeng has been shot! Seh Daeng has been shot!”

Now the New York Times reporter is talking about the experience – though, hysterical, CNN refuses to identify his affiliation in the piece – about what it’s like to watch a renegade Thai general get shot in the head:

“I was facing him, he was answering my questions, looking at me and the bullet hit him in the forehead, from what I could tell,” Fuller told CNN’s Michael Holmes. “It looks like the bullet came over my head and struck him. I don’t have any way of confirming this beyond what I remember from the scene but it felt like it grazed my head.”

This is, of course, as opposed to the experience of actually being shot in the head, which you can read about here.
