Bra Stuffed With Cash Uplifting Experience, Saves Woman’s Life

By Sandy Sand     Apr 15, 2009 in Crime
It’s no secret that since the invention of bodices and bras women have been using them as their personal banks, stuffing them with cash for safe keeping.
A wad of cash stashed by Ivonete Pereira de Oliveira, 58, of Sao Paulo, Brazil, can thank her hidden cache of cash for saving her life.
Oliveira was struck by a stray bullet when an off-duty police officer shot it out with two men, who were attempting to rob a bus she was a passenger on, said Salvador city police spokesman Vicente de Paula.
The cash, 150 reals is the equivalent to $70, slowed the bullet enough preventing it from entering her heart and killing her instantly.
The bullet was successfully removed at a near-by hospital, but the off-duty police office was killed.
There was no report of what happened to the gunmen.
