Purim Humor Cont'd

While life-saving, somehow I don't think there'll be a rush on implant procedures out here in Judea and Samaria:-

Breast implant saves woman's life

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- A silicone breast implant saved the life of a California woman who was shot in the chest by a gunman, a doctor says.

The gunman aimed his weapon directly at Lydia Carranza's heart but one of her implants stopped the bullet and prevented any fragments from reaching her vital organs, the Los Angeles Times reports.

"She's just one lucky woman," said Dr. Ashkan Ghavami. "The bullet fragments were millimeters from her heart and her vital organs. Had she not had the implant, she might not be alive today."

But one can hope?
