A woman’s life was saved by an iPhone after the mobile unit managed to stop the bullet that allegedly hit her during the hail of gunfire from Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock last Sunday night.
A story on KLAS did not identify the woman, but a taxi driver who ferried her to safety supposedly showed him the badly-damaged phone. The driver took a photo of the shattered unit and shared it on social media.
The phone appeared to have been hit at the bottom part, and the damage was considerably bad that the bullet could have seriously injured a person if it went through the body.
The photo showed the phone’s metal edge nearly peeled off and the glass outer layer splintered.
Accordingly, the woman told the driver she ran for cover after Paddock opened fire at the crowd of about 22,000 people attending the Route 91 Festival in Las Vegas.
The bullet from Paddock’s gun, the woman claimed, narrowly missed her as she scampered to safety and said she would be eternally grateful to her Rose Gold iPhone for saving her life.
At least 58 people were killed and more than 500 others were injured in what is now considered as the worst mass shooting ever in modern US history.
