huawei p8 lite shotIn the past we have heard stories of how phones have saved the lives of its owners, and we don’t mean that in a metaphorical sense, but literal sense where phones have successfully managed to stop bullets or shrapnel from causing some serious damage, and it looks like that trend is continuing.

According to a recent report, a 41-year old man by the name of Siraaj Abrahams of Cape Town was apparently saved by his Huawei P8 Lite. Abrahams was pulling into his driveway last week when he was approached by two muggers who then proceeded to shoot him twice in the chest, but thankfully due to the placement of his phone, the poor Huawei P8 Lite took two bullets for him, ultimately saving his life in the process, although it was reported that his heart had briefly stopped after he was shot.

Naturally this was pretty good PR for the folks at Huawei who took notice of it. The company decided to take Abrahams and his wife out for lunch where they presented him with a brand new Huawei P9 Lite as a replacement handset. They even arranged for Abrahams to attend all of the home matches of the Ajax Cape Town soccer team as a VIP guest, thanks mainly to the fact that Huawei is one of the sponsors of the team.
