Milred, 92, was fed up with mourning her husband for two years. She decided to kill herself. She thought the best way to do it was to shoot herself in the heart with her late husband's Army pistol. To make sure she got the right place, and didn't end up a vegetable, she called the doctors. They said her heart would be just below her left breast. Later that day Mildred was admitted to hospital with a gunshot wound in the knee.
