A man shot in the head during a robbery attempt walked almost two miles determined to die in the presence of loved ones. Finally making it the home of
his mother, he found that she had moved to a nursing home. However, the man ultimately survived his head wound and was reunited with his family.
FORT VALLEY, Ga. - A Fort Valley man walked nearly 2 miles with a bullet hole in his head after being shot in a robbery, determined to die in the
presence of loved ones if that was his fate.
Larry Taylor, 37, finally made it to his mother's house, but didn't realize she had moved away to a nursing home. Still, Taylor managed to eventually
reunite with his family and spent Christmas recovering from his trauma.
"If I was going to die, I wanted to make it home to Mama's and die there," said Taylor, who was recuperating at his sister's house.
Taylor told The Macon Telegraph he was walking to a friend's house around 9 p.m. Monday when a man approached him and asked to use his cell phone.

Talk about a freak of luck. It seems any change in the bullets path and he would have been dead. The assailant was caught and will face charges, but
to walk around for two miles after being shot in the head! He eventually called police for help after he found his mothers home vacant. You kind of
have to wonder why he just did not call police from the beginning.
