Man Says Cell Phone Saved Him From Stray Bullet

R.J. Richard says he doesn’t normally put his cell phone in his chest pocket. But he says it saved his life the one time he did. The 68-year-old man from Covington, La., was mowing the lawn on his 5-acre property when a stray bullet from nearby woods struck that cell phone. He figured a rock kicked up by his tractor hit him. That is, until he took out the phone and a .45-caliber bullet fell from its case. …  Doctors told Richard the bullet came at an angle, which along with the cell phone probably prevented serious injury. … However, Strain said investigators don’t believe the shooting was intentional. – cbs
