In an interesting news, a “hulk” phone cover saved a man from bullet during an armed robbery. The victim was caught at a wrong place at a wrong time when an armed robbery was taking place. Reportedly, the bullet smashed into the Motorola G5’s screen but wasn’t able to penetrate the back cover of the phone which featured Hulk. Interestingly enough, Hulk is a superhero from the Marvel comics whose impenetrable skin is immune to all bullets, missiles and other dangerous objects.
It’s often considered that death of a person happens at a pre-destined time and nothing before that time could take a person’s life. There are several stories of people making miraculous escapes and evading the grim reaper. Popular television show Game of Thrones had a quote where a character said – “What do we say to the God of Death? No.”
A man from Brazil was involved in a matter which could’ve surely taken his life. However, the man was saved thanks to his phone cover which had a hulk.
The Facts of the Matter
A lucky man from Brazil found himself inches close to death when he was caught in a place where an armed robbery was being taken place. The man miraculously escaped death after he was shot. The bullet reportedly smashed the screen of his Motorola G5 smartphone. However, the bullet in a twist of events, couldn’t penetrate the back cover which featured the raging avenger Hulk.
Man Rushed to Hospital, Doctors Prepared for Worst
According to reports, the victim of the incident was rushed to the University Hospital in Brazil’s Petrolina on October 7. The doctors meanwhile had prepared for worst as they had been reported that they would be receiving a man injured by a bullet.
When the doctor looked into the matter, they found that the man was left unscathed and uninjured. The man’s skin showed no evidence of a bullet penetration. Reportedly, the man was shot in a way that the bullet grazed his hip and pierced into his Motorola G5 smartphone.
Phone’s Back Cover Featured Bulletproof Hulk
The phone was encased with the most appropriate back cover. The phone’s back cover had a raging Hulk, an Avenger known for his anger and for his impenetrable armor of a skin. According to the doctor involved in the matter, the man left the emergency with some minor pain in his hip and a small bruise.
Patient Leaves with Small Bruise on Hip
Doctor Pedro Carvalho, who examined the lucky man, also took to Twitter and shared the incident. “And the patient who was admitted to the ER after being shot in a robbery and the bullet ended up in his cell phone!!! Detail for the cell phone cover!” wrote the doctor.
