Aaryn said the following on social media after the incident: “The bullets that went through my legs were armoured rifle bullets made to go through anything, which is how they got through the car, but the one that would have hit me in the head was not that kind and got stuck in the car.” I'm so glad to be alive that I can't put it into words.”
