In the wake of the terrible shooting in Las Vegas, we have been clinging to the amazing stories of heroism and sacrifice that saved countless lives.

From fathers who risked their lives to save others to Marines who threw themselves over strangers to keep them safe, the heroism that took place in response to this tragedy is inspiring. Men and women put their own safety aside to ensure others would get out alive.

But there are also some incredible stories of complete chance saving lives as well. One taxi driver in Las Vegas has an almost unbelievable story to tell.

The driver shared a picture of an iPhone that belonged to a woman he was driving to safety during the shooting. The phone had taken a bullet — but its owner hadn’t.

By chance, the bullet struck the phone just so. The shot shattered the iPhone, and in doing so, saved its owner’s life.

Imagine if the bullet had struck just an inch or two to either side: The thought of what could have happened is terrifying.

Of course, iPhones are replaceable — lives aren’t. Thankfully, this concertgoer can head home safely, thanks, in part, to her cell phone.

Check out the video below to see what the phone looked like after stopping the bullet, and please SHARE this amazing story on Facebook!
