No, It’s Not Just A Broken Cell Phone. It’s So Much More Than That, Believe Me.

Cell phones are one of the best inventions of modern times. They give us nearly unlimited access to information, the ability to talk to people from just about anywhere (depending on your provider), and they give us a lifeline in times of danger. But one man in Winter Garden, Florida discovered an entirely new use for his phone: stopping bullets.

When an armed robber entered the gas station he works at around 4:45am, demanding money, the two clerks couldn’t get the safe open. In frustration, the robber left but not before firing a single bullet. That bullet hit the clerk right in the stomach. Well…kinda.

The bullet hit the clerk right where it hurts – but doesn’t kill: his cell phone.

It wasn’t even until after the robbery when police were questioning him that the clerk complained of some pain in his chest. That’s when they discovered the lone shot actually did hit strike him.

“I’ve seen individuals get shot with low-caliber handguns and I’ve seen it be life ending. So for this gentleman to be as lucky as he is, it’s a good day for us,” said Winter Garden police Lt. Scott Allen.

I think this clerk will accept a broken phone over the alternative any day of the week.
