    Metal underwire in Detroit woman's bra deflects bullet from men breaking into neighbor's home

    DETROIT (AP) — The metal underwire in a Detroit woman's bra was credited with deflecting a bullet fired at her during a break-in at a neighbor's home. Detroit police Officer Leon Rahmaan said the 57-year-old woman apparently looked out her window Tuesday when one of three men fired the shot.

    He said the slug smashed through her window pane before hitting the bra's underwire. It did not penetrate her skin.

    Police said she may have gone to the window after a burglar alarm at the house next door sounded. Her neighbor was not at home at the time.

    The suspects drove away after the shooting.
    I am sure there is a joke in there somewhere, but it is escaping me.

    Anyway, one lucky woman.

    All in all, it was probably an uplifting experience for the woman after she discovered she was not wounded.
    The first time you aren't armed and prepared may be the last time you wished you were.
