A nurse who was part of desperate attempts to save the life of President John F Kennedy after he was assassinated has claimed he was shot by a ‘mystery bullet’.
Phyllis Hall, who was 28 at the time, says she was dragged into the operating room by a secret service agent as medics scrambled to help the president, who was fatally shot in Dallas, Texas on 22 November 1963.
While cradling his head, which had been torn apart by gunshots fired from the famous ‘grassy knoll’, Mrs Hall says she spotted an unusual bullet, which was promptly removed and never seen again.
She described the bullet in an interview with the Sunday Mirror, which she said looked completely undamaged, and bore no resemblance whatsoever to bullets later shown as evidence in investigations into the President’s murder.
She said: ‘I could see a bullet lodged between his ear and his shoulder. It was pointed at its tip and showed no signs of damage. There was no blunting of the bullet or scarring around the shell from where it had been fired.
