It is rare that you can say a phone saved my life. But one Florida man is probably really thankful for his today. When an armed assailant can into the Orange County gas station he works at demanding money from the safe was unable to get what he wanted he decided to let the clerks he was not happy. Right before leaving he let off one shot from his revolver. Both clerks thought they were lucky but one did not really know how lucky he was.

When the police and emergency service came to the store one clerk complained of chest pain. When went to check him they were all shocked to find he was in fact shot. But thanks to his EVO 3D that chest pain is as much damage as there was. The bullet hit the HTC device, shattering the screen, and finally ending up lodged in the phone.

Winter Garden Police Lieutenant Scott Allen said:

“I’ve seen individuals get shot with low-caliber handguns and I’ve seen it be life ending. So, for this gentleman to be as lucky as he is, it’s a good day for us”
