Bullet-proof bra’ saves woman’s life

A wad of cash stuffed in a woman’s bra saved her life during a shootout.

Ivonete Pereira de Oliveira, 58, was a passenger on the bus that two gunmen held up in Salvador, north east Brazil.

An armed off-duty policeman on the bus opened fire and in the ensuing gun battle, on Saturday, a bullet struck the left side of Ms Oliveira’s chest.

The 150 reals (about £48) in banknotes that Ms Oliveira hid inside her bra slowed the bullet enough to prevent it entering her heart and killing her instantly.
