Apple iPhone stops a bullet, saves the life of a 24-year old student
The student did not want to be identified since the mugger remains at large. The student's roommate told the local press that the victim was shaken up. "The jeans was tore and he showed me his iPhone ... and I saw the bullet was really clear on it. So it saved his life," the roommate told NBC affiliate KSEE. The victim has left the school and does not plan on returning.
This is hardly the first story about a smartphone saving a life by deflecting a bullet. Last August a Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 took a bullet for its owner. Other handsets that paid the ultimate price to save a human life include a BlackBerry, a Nokia Lumia 520 that saved a cop, and an HTC EVO 3D that saved its owner's life.
It is actually quite a disturbing trend, and quite scary to think that your life can be spared only because you decided to put your phone in a specific pocket.
