A Detroit woman’s life may have been saved by her bra after it deflected a bullet.
Police say she was looking out of her window when one of three burglars raiding a neighbour’s home fired the shot.
The bullet smashed through her window pane before hitting the bra’s underwire – but it didn’t penetrate her skin.
The 57-year-old woman, who was not identified, was treated at a nearby hospital, reports Metro.
Detroit police Officer Leon Rahmaan said: “It did slow the bullet down. She sustained injuries but they’re not life threatening.”
Police believe she went to the window after hearing the burglar alarm at the house next door. The burglars drove off after the shooting
