Nokia Lumia 520 Stops A Bullet, Saves A Police Officer

nl520-saves-a-police-officer_thumbWe all put our phones in different places on our person. Some people prefer keeping it in their pockets on the side, some prefer keeping it at the back, some prefer putting it in their shirt pocket, while others factor keeping it in a bag. Well it turns out that one off-duty policeman’s choice to put his Nokia Lumia 520 in his back pocket might have saved him from serious injury.

According to a report by Brazilian newspaper, Globo.com, and off-duty Sao Paulo policeman was visiting his family, whom at that time were held hostage and was being robbed by armed criminals. Upon seeing the policeman, they shot at him. One shot missed him but the other caught him in the buttocks where his Lumia 520 took the brunt of the damage, thus leaving him relatively unscathed.

The good news is that while the police officer was not injured, the robbers managed to get away with stolen cellphones, watches, jewelry, and money. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of our phones saving lives. In the past we have come across stories in which our phones took bullets for us and in one instance, saved a soldier from potential injury by taking shrapnel from a bomb.

We have to wonder if Microsoft, Nokia’s new owner, will be sending his police officer a brand new phone. After all it does make for great publicity, doesn’t it?
