President Gerald Ford escaped a second assassination attempt
In 1975, U.S. President Gerald Ford escaped a second assassination attempt in 17 days, this one by self-proclaimed revolutionary Sara Jane Moore (picture), who tried to shoot him as he walked from a San Francisco hotel.
Her shot, deflected by ex-Marine Oliver Sipple, a bystander who grabbed her arm, slightly wounded a man in the crowd.
Moore served 32 years of a life prison sentence. She was released in 2007 at the age of 77.
