'I am scared' - SABC 8 journalist who was shot in face
Johannesburg – 'SABC 8' journalist Suna Venter, who was shot in the face with a pellet gun two weeks ago, says she is lucky to have survived the traumatic ordeal with no serious injuries.
"The doctors say, if the bullet had followed a different route, it would have gone into the eye. They regard me as very lucky. Despite what happened, it was a good outcome," she told News24.
Venter said she was attacked while coming out of a restaurant in Linden, Johannesburg, while buying take-away food.
"As I was leaving, I felt like someone slammed me from behind, and I was bleeding."
She said she did not immediately realise that she had been shot and had tried to stop the bleeding with a bandage.
