Bra saves woman's life in robbery shooting - April 14th 2009, 11:23 PM

A Brazilian woman who was shot in the chest by robbers on a bus survived the attack because she had stuffed money into her bra.

Quote:
Local media reported that the woman was travelling on the bus on Saturday in the northeastern Brazilian state of Bahia when it was held up by two armed men.
The incident took place in Bahia's capital, Salvador, where 58-year-old Ivonete Pereira travelling to her summer home in the nearby town of Lauro de Freitas.

Because of frequent bus attacks in the region, she hid 150 reals (£45) in 20 and 10-real notes coiled inside the left cup of her bra.
When the bus passed through the Boca do Rio neighborhood, the robbers suddenly announced their intention. A shoot out ensued with a police officer on the scene and a stray bullet hit Miss Pereira.
Her bra was stuffed with just enough cash to absorb most of the impact, although she still had to be taken to hospital to have the bullet removed.
A retired police sergeant was shot dead during the clash with the assailants, who managed to escape.
lucky escape there.

I'm always sticking money into my bra, maybe one day it will save my life. :-) I doubt you could spend bills with bullet holes in them, however.

That's amazing! I wonder, how much longer tell someone turns this into a money making scheme, and women start buying bullet proof bras? :P


Drop me a PM anytime, about anything!
I would love to talk to you!

Lucky for her, not so much for the retired police officer. Wonder-bra, maybe?

Rofl, of course you can! Money is money, the bullet holes just....give them more character. Yeah...

Wow, when I first read the title of this thread, I was like "How much money was in there that it stopped a bullet??"


Yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers
But everything that lives is born to die
And so I say to you that nothing really matters
And all you do is stand and cry.

Wow. And people say having things in your bra is dumb.
