    Cell phone in man's chest pocket stops bullet

    COVINGTON, La. – A man says his cell phone saved his life. A stray .45-caliber bullet hit R.J. Richard's chest while he was mowing the lawn — hitting so hard he thought it was a stone kicked out by his tractor. He pulled out the phone. It fell apart.

    The 68-year-old man was bruised. He said doctors told him two things prevented worse injury, maybe even death: the phone, and the fact that the bullet came in at an angle rather than head-on.........

    Not sure if anyone has ever seen the movie Magnolia... but this seems like it would be a story from the opening sequence in that movie.

    Crazy stuff.
