Can bullets be left inside people?

I was out shooting with some friends today. One of them has been shooting guns for over 20 years, but today in a moment of carelessness, a hand gun went off on its own somehow while while my friend was holding it and it shot a .45 round into his thigh and somehow the bullet rode down his leg, past his knee and lodged it self in his calf. He didn't hit any major arteries and has no nerve damage so the doctors have decided that it would do more damage to go in and get it and are just gonna leave it there.

Has anyone ever heard of this?! I thought the bullets would poison someone or cause infections if they were left in lol?

Anyways, this is your friendly reminder to not grow over confident in your experience and to maintain focus at all times!
