You won't believe how an iPhone saved one man's life

You'll want to start carrying your phone in your shirt pocket from now on when you see this picture. The story is harrowing and truly incredible. One man is alive because of his iPhone and a miracle, and that's NOT an exaggeration.

It all began when the 25-year-old victim approached a group of teenagers who had cut off the water supply to his apartment. During the confrontation, 19-year-old Ryan Duggan decided to pull out his shotgun and shoot the victim.

The victim was shot directly in the chest, but luckily, he had his iPhone in his front shirt pocket, which is where the bullet ended up. The victim still sustained major injuries, but his phone took the brunt of blast. See the photo of the phone below, released by the Cheshire police, to get an idea:

Here's the official statement from police:

Duggan’s actions that night were extreme and shocking – the victim went outside to speak to the group about the fact they had turned off the water supply resulting in the defendant shooting him with a powerful weapon.

Fortunately, the victim’s mobile phone took the brunt of the shot and, as a result of this, he survived. This is remarkable – had that phone not been in his pocket at that time he would undoubtedly have died.

Whilst I hope that the conclusion of this case today brings about a degree of closure for the victim I am fully aware of the impact this case has had no him and the fact that the devastating injuries he sustained will affect him for the rest of his life.

Despite making good progress he still requires treatment for his injuries – including further operations and rehabilitation. The nightmare is far from over.
