Mobile shields man from death bullet

Shellphone?

A US man has claimed that divine intervention and his mobile phone helped save him from being shot.

Ronald Richard of North Lee Road, Covington, New Orleans told local paper The Times-Picayune that one day whilst out and about, he decided on a whim to put his Motorola Razr in a pocket directly over his heart, instead of the hip pocket where he usually keeps it.

No sooner had he done so than a stray .45-calibre bullet, thought to have been fired in nearby woodlands, came speeding towards Richards and hit the mobile phone dead on.

“I look at this as God telling me to put my cell phone in that pocket,” he told the paper.

He later called an ambulance - presumably not using his mobile phone - but suffered little more than a big bruise. His Razr was pronounced dead at the scene.
