Cell phone was a real life-saver

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

A cellphone can be a real life-saver -- and not just for making calls.

A Georgia police officer's cellphone stopped a bullet.

Authorities in Albany say Officer Willie Hall was responding to a hostage situation early the other morning.

He was shot at during the standoff.

But a local television station reports that the officer's cellphone blocked the bullet just enough to prevent a serious injury.

Hall was taken to a hospital for treatment.

The hostages were released, but police are still looking for the suspects.
