Bra Saved a Woman’s Life – level 3

21-03-2022 15:00

A Brazilian woman was caught in bullet crossfire after a thief open fire in the City of Belém. She thought she was not shot at first because there was no blood, but then she started to feel some stinging a few minutes later.

Her husband said that he feared for the worst, thinking that she was going to die, but the stray bullet got embedded in the wire of her bra. While she believes that it was God who saved her, she also felt that her trusty bra played an important role.

Difficult words: crossfire (area where bullets fly), stray bullet (a bullet which hit something other than the original target), embedded (fixed), trusty (good and reliable).
