Bullet Proof Cash!

 

Updated : Apr 15, 2009

Very HappyPig was always of the belief having money can prolong your life. A better standard of living often prompts better personal health standards. But a woman in Brazil took the ability of cash to save lives to a new level when she virtually used it as a bullet proof vest recently.
Money stuffed in the woman's bra saved her life after she was shot aboard a bus in the northeastern Brazilian state of Bahia, according to local media.

The incident took place Saturday in Bahia's capital, Salvador, where 58-year-old Ivonete Pereira was shot in the chest by one of two attackers who tried to rob the bus.

She was travelling to her summer home in the nearby town of Lauro de Freitas and because of frequent bus attacks in the region, she hid 150 reals (69 dollars) in 20- and 10-real notes coiled inside the left side of her bra.

When the bus passed through the Boca do Rio neighbourhood, the robbers suddenly announced their intention. A shootout ensued with a police officer on the scene and a stray bullet hit Pereira.

Her bra was stuffed with just enough cash to absorb most of the impact, although she still had to be taken to hospital to have the bullet removed.
