Life or death situation? There’s an app for that.
Police say a cellphone stopped a robber’s bullet in Florida. In an email, Winter Garden Police wrote that a man entered a gas station and asked a clerk for help, only to suddenly stick a revolver in his face and start demanding cash.
But there was a snag in the crook’s plan: The attendant couldn’t open the safe. When the robber ordered a second employee to try, he couldn’t open it either.
That’s when he fired a shot at one of the clerks and ran.
Stunned, the victim later pulled the phone out of his shirt pocket and made the shocking discovery – he walked away with only minor injuries.
Talk about a close call.
