A Toronto woman survived a point-blank gunshot wound thanks to her silicone breast implants, doctors have discovered. According to researchers, the breast implant deflected the bullet from hitting the 30-year-old victim’s vital organs in a 2018 incident, the SAGE medical journal reports. “The implant caused the change in the trajectory of the bullet,” surgeon Giancarlo McEvenue, a co-author of the study, told CNN. The shooting was one of a number of incidents where breast implants saved a shooting victim’s life.
