Breast Implant deflects Hizbollah rocket shrapnel

Quick hitter for today:

From the Reuters news wire today: An Israeli woman's breast implants saved her life when she was wounded in a Hizbollah rocket attack during Israel's war with the Lebanese group, a hospital spokesman said Tuesday.

Doctors found shrapnel embedded in the silicone implants, just inches from the 24-year-old's heart.

"She was saved from death," said a spokesman for Nahariya Hospital in northern Israel. The woman has been released from hospital.

That's a great story. I may have to link this on my blog!

I noticed it very early on & posted about it prior to it getting picked up widely (this story even made an appearence on the Drudge Report yesterday). It's kind of like some of the stories you hear about with bullets defelecting off bibles or jewelry.

This sounds like a story-line suitable for "Nip/Tuck", no?
