What one sitting US President has survived an assassination attempt even though he was wounded?

Ronald Reagan is the only sitting {in office}US President to survive an assassination attempt after being wounded. I should say that Teddy Roosevelt was also shot, and survived, but he was not in office at the time, and in the case of Andrew Jackson, the assassins pistols misfired, if not he very well may have been killed. There have been over a dozen attempts on other sitting presidents as well, but Regan is the only one to have actually been injured and survive. All other attempts were thwarted before the intended target was injured. Far more dramatic perhaps was the attempt on Harry Truman who was residing at Blair House while the White House was being renovated and was attacked by two armed Puerto Rican Nationalists. A White House Policeman lost his life in that attack and there were no deaths involved in the Reagan Assassination attempt. Perhaps because Hiinckley chose a less lethal weapon. Reagan was wounded by a ricochet of a 22 caliber bullet.
