How did John F Kennedy die?
John Fitzgerald Kennedy was riding in an open top limousine in a Dallas, TX, motorcade on November 22, 1963. Inside the limousine was John and Nellie Connally in the front seat and John and Jacqueline Kennedy in the back seat. When he entered Dealey Plaza three shots rang out. The second shot striking the scenery and the first shot striking him in the neck. The first shot (by Lee Harvey Oswalt) went through President Kennedy and struck Governor John Connally in the lower back, through his hand and into his thigh. The third shot struck President Kennedy in the brain and half of his face blew off. Jackie tried to jump out the back of the limo to retrieve the face but was stopped by secret service. He was then rushed to Parkland Hospital where he stayed alive for hours and then was pronounced dead.
