An old Nokia has saved a man’s life in Afghanistan after a b*ullet hit the handset, it has been claimed.
Incredible images show a b*ullet lodged in the device, with the tip sticking out of the phone’s smashed screen.
The pictures were tweeted by former Nokia executive Peter Skillman, who said: A ‘Nokia phone I worked on a few years ago saved the life of a man in Afghanistan last week’.
Last month, armed thieves in South Africa shot a businessman in the chest during a robbery. The man was saved when the gunman’s b*ullet hit his Huawei P8 Lite.
Two masked men attacked Siraaj Abrahams, 41, as he pulled up outside his home in Cape Town. They tried to take him out of his car.
During the fight, Mr. Abraham’s chest was hit by a 9mm b*ullet fired from close range.
Mr. Skillman now works at Microsoft, but he used to be on the team that made the old Nokia phone.
It looks like the phone is a Nokia 301, which came out in 2013.
What else has come to light that would help us understand how the b*ullet got into the phone?
Some people have said that the photo might not be real, especially since Mr. Skillman works for the phone company.
Gary Cutlack at Gizmodo says, “There’s a chance it might not be real and could be a stunt meant to boost Nokia sales in war-torn countries.”
