FROM TRAUMA SURGEON-There would have been many head, neck, chest, and abdominal wounds in that group, all with a significant risk of mortality. It is almost absurd that NONE of the wounded would have died by now.
I have some thoughts about the Las Vegas mass shooting that you may find
interesting. If so, you may put them in the alerts section if you deem them
worthy of publication. I am a general surgeon and have taken care of many
trauma patients.Regarding the Las Vegas shooting, I have not seen anyone else mention this
strange statistic. The official death toll as of October 17, is still 59.
We were told that on October 1st, a lone gunman killed 58 and wounded 512
or thereabouts. The shooter's death brought the total death count to 59.
Steve, if there were over 500 wounded, certainly the death toll would have
risen by now. Granted, many of the wounded would not have been wounded by
actual gunfire, but if 58 people were killed by high velocity, military
type rounds, it is very safe to say that at least that many, and probably
many more, were wounded by those same high velocity rounds. So let us
assume a very conservative estimate of 58 people wounded by high power,
high velocity, military type rounds. There would have been many head, neck,
chest, and abdominal wounds in that group, all with a significant risk of
mortality. It is almost absurd that NONE of the wounded would have died by
now. Perhaps, the additional deaths have not been reported - unlikely in my
opinion, or perhaps it is just monumental good fortune, but something is
amiss in this story. DR.RON
