While mowing his lawn, 68-year-old R.J. Richards was struck in the chest by a .45-caliber bullet. Luckily the Louisiana man’s cell phone, clipped to the front of his overalls, absorbed the blow. Richard walked away with only a bruise.
He first thought his tractor had kicked out a rock. But when he removed his cell phone from his overalls, it crumbled and a bullet fell out of it. Richard assumes a hunter in the woods near his 5-acre property fired the stray bullet.
