‘Bullet-proof’ bra saves woman’s life in hunting incident in Germany


A bra could have saved a woman’s life in a hunting accident in northeastern Germany. The 41-year-old vacationer from North Rhine-Westphalia survived being unintentionally shot due to her bra, which miraculously stopped the bullet, native media reported.

The girl was on a motorcycle experience together with her husband when the incident occurred in Mecklenberg-Western Pomerania, German each day Gadebusch-Rehnaer Zeitung reported. The couple had been crossing a area between the cities of Gadebusch and Köchelstor once they unknowingly discovered themselves in the world of a boar hunt.

The girl felt a sudden ache in her chest and it turned out she had been hit by a ricochet. A hematoma measuring about 1.5 by 1.5 centimeters fashioned. Luckily, the underwire of her bra had deflected the shot, in any other case the girl would have most likely sustained extra critical accidents. The German vacationer got here away with only a bruise and was taken to a health care provider to Gadebusch.

The woman’s husband reportedly noticed the alleged shooter in a neighboring farm and approached him to clarify what had occurred. “Those in charge of the hunt then immediately broke it up,” police spokesperson André Falke instructed the newspaper. Investigators have already recognized the person.

Gadebusch Criminal Commision is investigating the incident on allegations of harm brought on by negligence. In 2008, a bullet fired by a companion throughout a boar hunt hit a 50-year-old hunter in Mecklenburg, northern Germany. The man died, Gadebusch-Rehnaer Zeitung reported.
