Man’s belt buckle stops a bullet and saves his life

It was either a miracle or a lorra lorra luck.

IT’S A GOOD day for miracles here on DailyEdge.ie.  Earlier we told you about Tink, the hamster who came back from the grave, and now we’ve got another one.

Shop employee Bienvenido Reynoso (his first name means ‘welcome’, amazing) was working away, minding his own business, on Wednesday when he heard gunshots.

He dropped to the floor as bullets came through the front door of the Philadelphia shop.  After the shooters had gone, he checked himself and found that he hadn’t been hurt, but that there was a bullet embedded in his belt buckle.  ’It saved my life,’ he told a reporter.

You can see what else he had to say about the experience and see footage of the event itself here.
