There is  lucky, then there’s damn lucky!

Cell phone stops bullet aimed at Florida gas station clerk – CNN.com

Our subject story tells us of a Gas Station Clerk that gets conned into helping a man find a certain beverage, only to have himself looking down the barrel of a gun. The Hold Up man tries to get the clerk to open the store safe and the clerk fails.  A second clerk came in and the Hold Up guy had him try the safe. The second clerk also failed. The Hold Up guy split, firing off a round from his gun as he left. After the Cops and such arrived the first clerk decided that he was not feeling quite right so they checked him out.  He had been shot in the cell phone. I guess some “smart phones” are smart enough to save your life . . .

Over the years I have heard of numerous instances where a bullet was deflected by a cop’s badge or a notebook in a pocket, but a cell phone? Maybe the call phone is tougher than we think. Or maybe, sometimes there is lucky, then other times there’s damn lucky. I think this boy was “damn” lucky.
