RAZR Saves Lives

Here at Mobile Caller, we only relay the latest news about fancy, shmancy smartphones and applications. Today we are going to address you, our dearest reader, on a more serious note – a lifesaving note at that. We all know the Motorola RAZR holds the number one spot when it comes to sales in the U.S., but since the Apple iPhone moves closer and closer to snatching the top spot we have seen the RAZR lose some self confidence. What’s a downtrodden RAZR supposed to do? Gain its confidence back by saving a life, of course!

Ronald “R.J.” Richard was doing yard work on his 5-acre property in St. Tammay, Louis. when something struck him in the chest right above his heart. Richard described the impact as “a punch in the chest,” and initially thought some debris has been kicked up by his lawn mower. When the 68-year-old reached under his sweater and removed the cell phone clipped to his overalls to see if it had been damaged by the impact, a.45-caliber bullet dropped into his lap. According to the report, someone fired the round from woods roughly ¼-mile from Richard’s home, without malicious intent, and inadvertently struck the man in his chest. The cell phone and case, which Richard’s doesn’t ordinarily clip to the front of his overalls, took 100 percent of the damage from the bullet, and the man walked away without a scratch.

I smell a sequel to Whitney Houston’s The Bodyguard coming on, which will undoubtedly keep Motorola on top of the competition for years to come. Thanks little blue RAZR!

Check out the video story here, which is ironically led by a BlackBerry Storm commercial.
