MEMPHIS, TN (WFLX) - Call it a New Year's miracle or just good luck.
A baby girl is doing fine Friday morning after a stray bullet landed in her diaper on New Year's. It happened during a midnight service at a church in Memphis, Tennessee.
Police believe the bullet may have been fired outside from a reveler's gun. The 7 month old's mother says when the little girl started crying and screaming, she didn't know what was wrong. "I picked her up and tried to give her 'binky' 'cause 'binky' normally calm her down. But 'binky' didn't work."
The mother then took the girl to the bathroom where she found the bullet in the diaper.
Police say they've found stray bullets in unusual places before - reminders of how dangerous carelessly firing weapons into the air can be.
