Woman Saved From Death After Breast Implant
A woman was saved from death by her breast implants after they deflected a bullet when she was shot in the chest, experts have said.
The 30-year-old woman, who has not been named, was walking down the street in Canada when she was shot.

She only realized she had been shot when she felt “heat and pain” in her chest and saw blood when she looked down, according to a report published in the Sage journal.
The victim then was treated at the McLean Clinic in Mississauga, Ontario, where she had her implants removed.
The report added the only additional injuries she had was a fractured rib.
During surgery, surgeons removed the woman’s left breast implant and found a “bullet tract” which aligned with the entry wound, but no bullet.
They later examined the right implant and found it had been flipped upside down and the dome of the implant was damaged, and the bullet was located beneath the woman’s right breast in her chest.
