Cellphone stops bullet, saves woman’s life (for real!)

Sólo fue un susto. Nancy apenas tuvo unos raspones.

La ropa de la mujer quedó quemada.
This happened in Tucumán, Argentina a couple days ago.

A women was mugged and the bastard shot her while fighting over her cellphone.
In what I can only assume is a typical instinctive reaction of bringing your hands up to defend yourself, the phone was shot and the bullet didnt have enough strength to seriously wound her, only suffering minor cuts along her arm and abdomen.

The hole looks small, most likely 22LR. Even if just a 22, that’s some serious luck. Must have been with the phone at an angle, the round further losing velocity along the arm (maybe clothes) and then hitting her abdomen with low enough velocity. Or maybe the bullet just fragmeneted a lot when hitting the battery, Gorilla glass backed by a screen protector.

Its very interesting. Look at how big that exit hole is. The phone did a far better job than I'd think.
Anyway, she should try getting a few lottery tickets as well!
