Marine survives sniper headshot by inches in Afghanistan

That was extremely lucky!

Shocking video taken from inside an Afghanistan war zone reveals a Marine’s unbelievable brush with death when a Taliban sniper’s bullet hits him directly in the head as a fellow soldier’s helmet cam catches it all.

The soldier survived to fight again following the 2013 insurgent ambush in the Now Zad District of Helmand Province thanks to his Kevlar-reinforced helmet.

It’s a terrifying first-hand look at how close U.S. forces come to disaster each day as wars rage abroad.
