A Denver woman is feeling very lucky today after she almost lost her life while walking to her car in Green Valley Ranch.

Wendy Shaya says she was walking to her car when she felt a sharp pain in her foot. She "looked down and it was gushing blood everywhere." Shaya told Fox 31 Denver that one of her first thoughts was that a vein had ruptured.

After going to the emergency room and seeing the 9MM bullet that the doctors removed from her foot, she was stunned. Wendy has a message in hopes that this doesn't happen to anyone else.

"The biggest thing is that it is illegal to shoot guns in the air and the idea that if you do that, the bullet is still deadly."

Police are investigating the falling bullet to see if it matches any gun that might be involved with other crimes.
