Royalty-free historical black and white stock photograph of an xray of the bullet inside President Theodore Roosevelt after John Schrank shot him on October 14th 1912. The story of the attempted assassination is very interesting. The bullet was lodged in his chest following the penetration of his steel eyeglass case and passing through 50 pages of the speech that he was carrying in his jacket. Since Roosevelt was an experienced hunter and anatomist, he thought that since he was not coughing blood that he had enough time to deliver his speech before going to the hospital. The brave man delivered his scheduled speech over a period of 90 minutes with blood seeping into his shirt and his opening comments to the crowd were, "I don’t know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot; but it takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose." Upon examination at the hospital, probes and xrays showed that the bullet had traversed three inches of tissue and lodged in Roosevelt’s chest muscle but did not penetrate the pleura, and it would be more dangerous to attempt to remove the bullet than to leave it in place. The bullet remained in Roosevelt’s body until he died. The x ray was taken by G.W. Hochrein M.D. and the photograph of the xray was taken by the Bain News Service. [0003-0805-1223-4628] by 0003
