The Smartphones are becoming not only a cause of divorce, but can also help in studying cosmic rays, or even get out of captivity. Sometimes, phones, literally, save lives as happened with a donated iPhone 5s, who saved the owner from a shot from a shotgun.
UK resident Daniel Kennedy, while returning after a walk with the dog, found out that the water supply to his apartment was turned off.
He thought that this was the fault of a group of teenagers, who were near his residence, and went over to them for a conversation. The verbal fight turned into a more serious conflict. Instead of talking though, one of the teenagers — Ryan Duggan, 19 — took out his double-barrel shotgun and shot Kennedy.
The force of the shot was so strong that Kennedy was taken off of his feet. The victim was able to return home and called an ambulance.
Police who arrived at the place of shooting, found on the asphalt a green iPhone 5s, a damaged lead shot. As later told Detective Gary McIntyre, a smartphone took over the bulk of the fraction, and if not for a high-tech gadget, the victim would have died right on the spot. Doctors said that in case of contact with the body, Daniel would have died from loss of blood, and not waiting for doctors.
In the past year, acting as a shield, a Nokia Lumia 520 device protected from its owner from death, literally stopping the bullet like body armor. A battery acted as a deterrent. A year earlier, selflessly sacrificed HTC Evo 3D, saved its owner, the seller refills in Florida. As the Nokia Lumia 520, the hero of the story also seized bullet.
