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 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:
