Cell phone takes bullet for gas station clerk

Engineers delight in putting pens in their shirt pockets.
For gas station clerks, however, the location of your cell phone in your shirt pocket could save your life.

As WFTV reports it, a man walked in, demanded the safe be opened, and brandished a gun. Two clerks tried to open the safe, but failed. The robber took off, but not before turning and firing at one of the clerks.

As WESH-TV reports, when the police arrived, one of the clerks complained of chest pain. A touch of angina? No, a bullet to his HTC.


The clerk, who has not been named, went to the hospital but was given the all-clear. The suspect, whose actions were recorded on surveillance video, is still at large.
