He was mortally wounded by a bullet
On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was mortally wounded by a bullet. The bullet pierced through the left lung and left ventricle of the heart. The bullet struck him several times, injuring him in several different places. Later, a second bullet penetrated the left lung and entered the chest. It was so damaged that it was impossible to identify the bullet. The bullet also punctured the left hand’s thumb. The autopsy report listed multiple bullet wounds, a traumatic brain injury, and a massive bilateral hemothorax.
