Lawmaker Still Has Bullets in Body 40 Years After Jonestown
California Congresswoman Jackie Speier struggles to watch the moments before she was gunned down 40 years ago ahead of the Jonestown Massacre.
“It certainly brings back these horrible experiences,” she told Inside Edition.
She was shot five times as she attempted to escape the Peoples Temple cult in Guyana before the mass murder-suicide of hundreds of members.
“When I looked down at my body, I had a bone coming out of my arm, I had a hole in my leg the size of a football,” she recalled.
