    DVD in firefighter's coat blocks bullet

    WALTERBORO, S.C. - A South Carolina man is thankful for a DVD that ended up taking a bullet for him. Colleton County Fire and Rescue Director Barry McRoy says he was leaving a Waffle House restaurant in Walterboro on Saturday morning when two men ran in fighting over a gun. Police say a bullet hit one of the struggling men, shattered a window and then hit McRoy..........

    I highly doubt the DVD case did anything.
    If the bullet already hit 1 person and shattered a window, there probably wasn't enough velocity to be fatal.
    I couldn't imagine a platic DVD case would provide any more protection than say, a jacket or sweatshirt.
    I'm no balistic expert though so who knows.
