Linda Burnett, 23, was visiting her in-laws and, while there, went to a
nearby supermarket to pick up some groceries. Several people noticed
her sitting in her car with the windows rolled up and with her eyes
closed, with both hands behind the back of her head.
One customer who had been at the store for a while became concerned
and walked over to the car. He noticed that Linda's eyes were now open,
and she looked very strange. He asked her if she was okay, and Linda
replied that she had been shot in the back of the head and had been holding
her brains in for over an hour.
The man called the paramedics, who broke into the car because the
doors were locked and because Linda refused to remove her hands from the
back of her head. When they finally got in, they found that Linda had a
wad of bread dough on the back of her head.
A Pilsbury biscuit canister had exploded from the heat, making a loud
noise that sounded like a gunshot, and the wad of dough hit her in
the back of the head. When she reached back to find out what it was, she
felt the dough and thought it was her brains. She initially passed out but
quickly recovered and tried to hold her brains in for over an hour
until someone noticed and came to her aid.
