Social media is flooded with a video of a Ukrainian soldier who was shielded from a gunshot by his iPhone 11 Pro.
The video, which was shared on Reddit, shows a purported Ukrainian soldier pulling his iPhone out of his knapsack. The broken phone with the bullet embedded within is the main subject of the video. The 2019 model was used as a bulletproof vest, which would have killed the soldier otherwise.
The message did not go into detail about the incident.The video has received over 3,000 upvotes and many comments since it was shared.
A user even playfully penned, "An apple a day keeps the doctors away!" "iPhones are finally useful for something!" exclaimed another. "I'm glad he lived to tell the tale.""Why not make a bulletproof jacket out of the same material used in smartphones?" said a third. It'll be a lot lighter!" Humorously, fourth wrote, "Shot on iPhone, or rather, shot in iPhone."
On February 24, Russia started a "special military operation" in Ukraine. Moscow has stated on several occasions that its operation primarily aims to destroy Ukraine's military infrastructure, not the civilian populace. The United Nations has also claimed that hundreds of civilians have died since Russia invaded Ukraine, contradicting statements made by Russia that the West has ignored. There have also been thousands of deaths among the fighters.
