A victim of the Denver shooting is lucky to be after alive being hit by a shotgun blast during the attack that killed 12 people last Friday, NBC news reports.
Three pellets struck 22-year-old Petra Anderson's arm and one went through her head but missed the brain's many blood vessels and key sections controlling vital functions.
