Police Officer Avoids Bullet in the Butt Because Of His Smartphone

Your smartphone can be a lifesaver in emergencies, whether you’re looking for the nearest gas station ……. or dodging bullets. An off-duty police officer in Brazil was visiting his parents in the city of Araraquara, when found them being held hostage by two men who were robbing their house. When the criminals saw the officer’s uniform, they opened fire. The officer, who turned to flee, was struck in the butt by a bullet. Thankfully, the smartphone he had in his back pocket took the bullet instead. The phone, of course, was completely destroyed. The robbers fled the scene, getting away with cell phones, watches, jewelry and cash. The Sao Paulo Military Police pursued the subjects, but were unable to catch them.
