By all accounts, Jessel Edgardo Recinos should be dead.
After the 24-year-old was wrongly accused of stealing the cell phone of a dangerous criminal, a hit was placed on his life. He was just 16.
The man’s 9-millimeter pistol put a bullet through Jessel’s back, narrowly missing his lungs, ribs and heart. “It was a case of death,” Jessel explains.
