HOUSTON, TX – Houston Plastic Surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose performed necessary reconstructive surgery for Houston mom and hero police officer Ann Carrizales following her traumatic injury to her face and breast caused by gunshot wounds to the head and neck.
During a routine traffic stop in October 2013 Texas police officer and former United States Marine Ann Carrizales took two bullets at point-blank range resulting in traumatic injury to her chest when the kevlar pierced her “bullet-proof” vest causing a large disfiguring wound into the breast area. Nonetheless, she chased and apprehended the suspect even while terribly wounded.
Ann was also significantly injured when she was shot in the face as the bullet entered near the cheek area and exited near her ear-yet she still went after the bad guys- see the her dramatic story as aired on the Today Show:
