A Cheshire man was able to survive a close-range shotgun glass because of his pocketed iPhone, which absorbed most of the damage:
Fortunately, the victim’s mobile phone took the brunt of the shot and, as a result of this, he survived. This is remarkable – had that phone not been in his pocket at that time he would undoubtedly have died.
This sixth-grader has clearly learned his lesson about the appropriate time and place to use the phrase "Deez Nuts". Hint: It's not while prank calling 911, because you should never prank call 911.
According to the police department in Savannah, Ga, where the call was made, the boy's parents brought him to the local 911 center where this letter was read aloud to the staff. While he was visiting he got to see how the 911 center works and understand why prank calls interfere with important emergency operations.
