A woman in Brazil has survived being shot because she had a wad of cash stuffed into her bra. Ivonete Pereira was travelling on a bus from Salvator to Bahia when two armed robbers tried to hold up the bus. She knew that bus robberies were common so had hidden all of her money inside her bra. When a shootout began between the robbers and police Pereira was hit by a spray bullet but the cash inside her bra has slowed it enough that she was not killed. Instead she was taken to hospital to have the bullet removed. What a lucky escape.
