Seat Belt saved this womans life

And a Bra strap

Quote:
TAMPA, Fla. - A 44-year-old woman escaped serious injury from a gunshot Sunday thanks to her seat belt and a thick bra strap, authorities said.

Robin Key, 44, of Riverview, Fla., was shot through the windshield of the car she was riding in Sunday. She said she felt a searing pain in her shoulder.

Hillsborough County sheriff's deputies said a .38-caliber bullet smashed through the windshield then bounced off Key's shoulder — thanks to a seat belt and a thick bra strap.

The copper-jacketed slug landed in her lap.

"It's a big bullet, but you had all those forces acting against it," Hillsborough sheriff's spokesman J.D. Callaway told the St. Petersburg Times. "It's very rare that something like that occurs. She's very lucky. You know, we're just glad she came out OK."

Key said she didn't know why anyone would shoot her. Sheriff's deputies arrested two men in connection with the shooting several hours later.

Authorities said they do not have a motive for the shooting.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

I can see her interview on National Television now. "My bra saved me. I'd always wondered why I had the Double D's and now I know. The material used to reinforce these babies saved my life."

Actually comparing placeholders from the DDD's of the present model and DD's of the older model against the pattern on my floor - I think the straps just get wider - not thicker once your above a C.

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.
