I would call BS on this one. You dont get your heart torn up and live. You would bleed out in very short order.
Stacy Lim was an LAPD officer who was shot through the heart
with a .357 Mag. She drew her 9mm and killed her attacker before collapsing. She survived and returned to duty.
The bullet, a hollow-tipped magnum load, fragmented and nicked nearly every organ in her torso: her stomach, her intestines, her liver. It shattered her spleen, cracked a rib and put a hole in the base of her heart
before exiting out her back.
