Apparently the bra can more than uplift one's features. Like saving one's life! Yes, it has happened in Detroit, US. The bullet fired by a gang bounced off a woman's bra-wiring, and the police think the wiring could be considered for making bullet-proof vests.
A 57-year-old woman is alive today because her bra stopped a bullet from killing her when men breaking into a neighbor's home shot her, Detroit police said.
AdvertisementThe lucky 57-year-old woman saw male teenagers breaking into her neighbor's house Tuesday morning and when they saw her, one of them fired a shot, police said.
Police said the underwire of the bra deflected the bullet, but that the woman was injured. She was taken to an area hospital, but released by the afternoon, according to a local radio station, Detroit News reported. Police said the injury was not life-threatening.
"Isn't that amazing," Detroit Police Sgt. Eren Stephens Bell said of the deflection. "We need to get some bullet-proof vests made from that. It is some strong wire."
