HTC EVO 3D takes a bullet for its owner and saves his life
With all of the things that the average smartphone can do, one thing that you do not expect from your handset is for it to take a bullet for you and save your life. But that is exactly what happened to an unnamed Hess clerk in Winter Garden, Florida. The man's HTC EVO 3D took the brunt of a gunshot fired by a robber who fired a revolver at the clerk. The robber went into the gas station and forced two clerks to try to open the safe. When neither could, the intruder left, but not before firing off a round at one of the men. Luckily, the bullet was intercepted by the phone and the clerk never knew he was shot until he fished his HTC EVO 3D out of his pocket.
The shooter remained at large as of Monday afternoon. While the clerk suffered minor injuries, the HTC EVO 3D pretty much bought the farm.
