An old Nokia has saved a man’s life in Afghanistan after a bullet hit the handset, tweeted by a former Nokia employee.
This shocking images have shown a bullet lodged in the phone 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 few years ago saved the life of a man in Afghanistan last week..’.
The phone appears to be a Nokia 301 which was first introduced in 2013 and Mr Skillman where now currently works at Microsoft, previously worked on the team that developed the old Nokia handset.
Mr Skillman said the photos was passed to him by one of his co-worker and there are no more details to explain how the bullet came to be lodged in the phone.
However, some have claimed that the photos might be not entirely genuine since Mr Skillman used to affiliate with the phone maker. ‘There’s a chance it might not be a genuine thing and could be stunt designed to boost Nokia sales in war-torn countries’, said by Gary Cutlack at Gizmodo.
Whether it’s true or not, this is not the first time a mobile phone stopping a bullet. In 2014, a Nokia Lumia 520 reportedly saved the life of a Brazilian police officer who has shot by armed robbers.
