Last week I think I may have read the most interesting news but I forgot to share it with you because I was too busy preparing for Christmas (such as last minute panic shopping for everything!). Nevertheless I am here now and you might have read this news yourself but I want to share it with everyone. In a nutshell this girl who was wearing her glasses was saved by them when a gunman shot at her- I am not even kidding you and if you don’t believe me I am sure you can google it.
If I remember this story correctly what happened was this teenage girl was sitting at home watching TV and just minding her own business when gunmen drove past and started shooting into her house. She had a REALLY lucky escape when one bullet hit the metal bridge part of her frame right above her nose. The glasses were of course immediately broken in half but she was saved!
If she wasn’t wearing glasses then I think we all know what would of happened. The bullet would of gone into her head and possibly into her brain so it definitely could of taken her life. In this instance I would definitely say as a glasses wearer she most certainly had a better chance of surviving than if she didn’t wear glasses. So hooray to all us glasses wearers!
However, these kind of cases are of course a tad extreme and may never happen in the UK (because this did happen in America). I would LOVE for the Myth Busters (yeah I rather like that program due to my husband) to look into this case and see if this is at all possible that a pair glasses can reflect a bullet off and save someones life. In the mean time PLEASE DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!!!!
