A lot of people say that they don’t know how they’d survive without their iPhone. In one soldier’s case, such a statement wouldn’t be an exaggeration. Staff Sgt. Shaun Frank from Utah was injured in an explosion set off by a teenage suicide bomber in Afghanistan. The bomb was filled with ball bearings, many which left holes in Frank’s body, however, he had one safe spot — the area where his iPhone was stuffed in his pants pocket. The device’s metal body stopped several pieces of shrapnel from hitting Frank. On top of that, the community came together to support him, which he says means the world. Check out the full story here.
