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.
