Cellphone Saves Clerk From Bullet Published: October 29, 2013

Police say a cellphone saved a Florida gas station clerk from a robber's bullet, according to The Associated Press.

The AP reports a man entered the gas station in Winter Garden yesterday and asked a clerk for help. Then he showed the worker a revolver and demanded he open the safe. When the clerk couldn't open the safe, the robber ordered a second clerk to try. He was also unsuccessful.

The suspect fired a round at the abdomen of one of the clerks and fled; police say the clerk's cellphone stopped the bullet, according to the AP.
