The editor said in his story that the matter was reported by a surgeon who had treated both men that afternoon. As the soldier fell from the gravity of the bullet, a young farm girl screamed for help after being hit by a stray bullet.
Thanks to the efficiency of the doctor, both the warrior and the resident were swiftly saved from near death. According to the article, however, the soldier lost his left testicle and, without explanation, the same day the villager became pregnant.

There could be no other solution to the event! I expressed these convictions to the family and, at their request, my young soldier friend put the matter in the proper light.
