Woman Shot In Eye Finishes Beer Before Accepting Medical Treatment

Talk about one for the road.

The Winnipeg Free Press reports that authorities found a 30-year-old woman who, after being shot in the eye, refused to accept any medical treatment until after she finished her beer.

"It was like she was oblivious to what had happened," one source told the Free Press. "She didn't want any treatment until after she finished her beer."

Though the woman survived the incident, the woman's friend, 46-year-old Michael Warren Sinclair, was shot dead.

According to a neighbor who spoke with the Winnipeg Sun, the home in which the shooting took place was a hotbed for illegal activity.

"There's always troubles down there," the resident, who did not want to be identified, told the paper. "Cars are coming and going like God damn flies down there. It's been like that for years."

The news comes one day after a woman bodybuilder from Nevada miraculously survived being shot in the head during a carjacking.
