On this day — February 15, 1933
Franklin Roosevelt survives assassination attempt
Speaking from the back of an open car near Miami, Florida, President-elect Roosevelt is missed by Giuseppe Zangara's bullets, but they bring down five others, including Chicago's mayor, Anton Cermak, who will die 19 days later.

Giuseppe "Joe" Zangara was the assassin of Anton Cermak. Zangara was an Italian American anarchist who shot Cermak and four others in Miami, Florida on February 15, 1933, during a speech by United States President–elect Franklin D. Roosevelt. Roosevelt himself may have been the intended target, but was unharmed.
