November 27, 2008 A man in New Orleans had one of the luckiest escapes on record last week when a stray .45 bullet struck him the chest, directly above his heart, only to be thwarted on its journey by a cell phone. He escaped with a bruised chest and a dead Motorola Razr. We wrote earlier this week about the world’s toughest phone, currently the Sonim XP1 and soon to be the Sonim XP3. Amazingly, the lucky fellow, "R.J." Richard, normally clips his phone to his hip pocket but for some reason that day hooked it to bib on his chest. "Something hit me in the chest really hard," said Richard, who initially thought he had been struck by a rock kicked up by the motor of the tractor he was driving. But when he took off his sweater and opened the nylon case for his Motorola Razr phone, a .45-caliber bullet fell out.. Story via New Orlean Times Picayune
