Mobile Phone Saves a Life by Stopping Bullet

Winter Garden police officials say a convenience store clerk was shot at by an assailant  in a robbery in Florida. The shop assistant was unable to open the till for the robber, who then made a run for it. Whilst fleeing the store, the robber fired a single bullet that hit the clerk in the stomach. Unbelievably he only suffered minor injuries after his HTC cellphone stopped the bullet!

Even more shockingly, the clerk didn’t even know he had been shot! He only realised after complaining of chest pains. When they took a look, they found the phone on him with a bullet lodged in it.
