article imageNokia Lumia 520 survives bullet impact and saves policeman

By James Walker     May 2, 2014 in Technology
A Nokia Lumia 520, the popular Windows Phone device, has saved a police man from sustaining a bullet impact in Brazil and shown how well made Nokia's latest devices are.
An as-yet unnamed police officer in San Paulo, Brazil, was shot at by two criminals he discovered invading his parents' house earlier this week while off-duty.
The intruders shot two bullets at the off-duty officer. One bullet missed but the other entered his rear pocket in his trousers where it would have continued through the top of the leg if not for the presence of his Nokia Lumia 520 in the pocket. Although the phone screen and body completely shattered, it is still held together in one piece and clearly shows just how good the build quality on recent Nokia Windows Phone devices has been.

Famously, a Nokia Lumia 920 managed to continue to stay working despite being run over by a 24 ton bulldozer last year and although the 520 in this incident is not still functioning the impact it received it was obviously a lot more focused and direct than the 920's bulldozer incident.
The police officer was astonished to realize that he had survived the shooting because of his trusty phone and walked away shocked but completely uninjured. The robbers who invaded his parents' house got away, however, but didn't take the chance to take any valuables with them.
