Bulletproof Fat Man

`Chilean doctors say a 266 pound man who was shot in the stomach was saved by his rolls of fat.

They say the bullet lodged in the man’s fat and did not damage any vital organs. A thinner person would have been killed immediately.

A hospital spokesperson in Santiago says the man’s thick layer of fat acted in the same way as a bulletproof vest, taking the impact of the shot.’
