Bulgarian airbag saves Russian in knife attack

Blade stuck in 'huge' jub implant

Security for virtualized datacentres

A Moscow woman emerged pretty much unscathed from a vicious knife attack at the hands of her husband after the blade wedged in one of her silicone breast implants.

According to Pravda, the unnamed 40-year-old had a boob job five years ago, in which she received "size four" enhancements. During a row, her hubby grabbed a knife "in a fit of anger", and plunged it into her left breast, apparently aiming for her heart.

The exact volume of a "size four" isn't noted, but Pravda says the "large" Bulgarian airbag prevented the blade from even reaching her thorax. The implant "didn't leak" as the result of the assault, and the victim even emerged from her ordeal with her left chesticle maintaining its "original shape".

She has since had her mock jub replaced with a non-perforated implant.

Breast implants have had a mixed record as eye-catching potential lifesavers over the last few years. Since we first reported on the Bulgarian car-crash woman and her 40DD airbags back in 2006, we've also learned that D-cup funbags can deflect bullets from semi-automatic assault rifles.

However, augmented mams have sometimes proved vulnerable to other forms of attack, such as enraged bees and paintball rounds. ®
