    Woman says her love handles saved her life



    Samantha Lynn Frazier said she heard two pops when she walked into Herman's Place in Atlantic City, N.J.
    The 35-year-old Florida woman then felt pain and saw blood on her hand after she grabbed her left side.

    Cops said the gunman was aiming for a man who escaped with a bullet hole in his down jacket.

    Frazier was an innocent bystander who took the bullet, reports The Washington Post.
    Frazier told The Press of Atlantic City that 'I could have been dead. They said my love handles saved my life."
    Frazier also told the newspaper that she had been "hollering" that she wanted to lose weight. She now said, "I want to be as big as I can if it's going to stop a bullet."

    Thinks it would take a whole bunch of "ballistic gel" to verify if there is any truth in that story!:shocked:

    If she was skinner, the bullet may have missed her completely...go figure (no pun).
