Woman saved by her bra
A Michigan woman has her bra to thank for saving her from a bullet.
Police said Leola Brock-Reese wasn't home at the time of the burglary, but her 57-year-old neighbor was and saw men breaking into the home on the city's west side.
Police said when the burglars noticed the woman watching, one of them fired a shot into the woman's living room. The bullet shattered the woman's living room window but barely grazed her skin. Police said it was the underwire in her bra that deflected the bullet."I should buy more underwire bras," Brock-Reese joked.
The woman's daughter, who is also a Detroit police officer, said her mother's minor injuries are from the broken glass.
Who'd of thought that a bra could not only save your figure but save your life.
