Woman Favours Bullet in Head Over Future With No Mobile

By Gary Cutlack on at

A US woman faced by a mugger with a gun refused to hand over her phone, preferring to risk a bullet in the head than face the nightmare prospect of having to get through the rest of the day without a phone to look at.

In an interview with a local TV station, the lady explained: "He was like, hey, let me get that phone. I was like, I'm not giving you my phone sir. He's like, I'm going to shoot you, so I put my hands up."

"I looked down the barrel and was like no please don’t shoot me," she said, adding " I work hard for my stuff" as her main reason for refusing to hand over the phone. The potential thief did indeed shoot her, but somehow managed to only graze the side of her head with the bullet. [Cnet]
