Apple didn’t design the iPhone to be shotgun-proof, but it saved a man’s life anyway.
You don’t have to search far to find someone who will claim that they can’t live without their iPhone, but for a 25-year-old British man, that statement is particularly true.
Police in Cheshire are hailing a green iPhone 5c as a lifesaver after it bore the brunt of a shotgun blast that would have otherwise killed its owner.
The plastic and metal of Apple’s iPhone 5c was the only thing standing between the victim and a blast from a shotgun wielded by 19-year-old Ryan Duggan, a teenager who has been charged with attempted murder.
The phone, which was destroyed in the incident, stopped the majority of the weapon’s pellet projectiles in their tracks, saving the victim’s life and ensuring he was able to identify the assailant.
