Breast Implants Save Woman from Rocket Fire
An Israeli woman's life was saved by her breast implants when she was caught in Hezbollah rocket fire. This is reminiscent of a news story a while back about a woman whose breast implants saved her life in a car accident.
"The young woman went through surgery two years ago to have a larger chest," he said. "During the war she was wounded in the chest by shrapnel" that got stuck in the implants instead of penetrating further.
The implant had to be replaced. So along with all the other casualties in the Lebanon war, we can add one breast implant to the list of losses.
