BREAST IMPLANTS, YES, FAKE BOOBS, SAVE WOMAN FROM BULLET TO THE HEART
So I’ve never been much of a fan of breast implants, myself. There’s something about fake boobs that just doesn’t do it for me. Call me old fashioned. But they give me the heebie jeebies. And yet now I may have a sudden appreciation of them. Why? Because they just saved a woman’s life from a bullet that otherwise would have hit her heart and killed her. I know, it seems crazy. But this recent story isn’t the first time breast implants have done this! So a boob job literally saved a woman’s life. Again.
VICTIM WAS JUST WALKING DOWN TORONTO STREET WHEN SHE FELT HEAT AND PAIN IN HER CHEST
So when did this happen? Back in 2018. But we’re only hearing about it now from a report this month in a journal, Plastic Surgery Case Studies. The breast implants stopped a bullet in Toronto, Canada. The victim was a 30-year-old woman who was simply walking down the street and then suddenly felt “heat and pain in her left chest.” And yes, that pain was a gunshot wound. She looked down and saw blood running down her body from the entry wound. So she went to a nearby emergency room. But when they saw that it was a gunshot wound, they transferred her to a trauma center.
LEFT BREAST IMPLANT DIVERTED BULLET ACROSS HER BODY, THRU SECOND IMPLANT, FLIPPING IT
So what happened? The left breast implant diverted the bullet away from her heart, across her body. The bullet tore thru both her breast implants and came to rest in her right chest. The bullet’s force flipped the right breast implant upside down. Doctors removed both implants and doctors treated her wounds, which included a fractured right rib. Fortunately, the woman made a full recovery. But she did have to wait a while to get new breast implants. Two years later, we still have no idea who shot a bullet at the woman, or why.
