A gas station clerk from Orange County, Fla. has survived an attempted robbery after his HTC EVO 3D stopped an assailant's bullet. CNN reports that after being unable to access the store's safe, the suspect fired a single shot as he was leaving the scene. It was only after emergency services arrived that the victim's lucky escape became apparent — the bullet had hit the man in the chest, but impacted the phone in his shirt pocket. Photos of the device show that the bullet shattered the screen before becoming lodged in the battery. CNN reported that the gunman remained at large on Monday evening.
Bizarrely it's not the first report of an HTC phone taking a bullet for its owner. Back in 2011 an HTC Droid Incredible was involved in a similar incident, saving an Atlanta valet driver's life by stopping a bullet aimed at his chest.
