Man Survives #Shotgun Attack After His #IPhone Takes Brunt Of Blast

Posted: May 23, 2015 in Culture

Detective Inspector Gary McIntyre from Cheshire Police said if the victim’s phone had not been in his pocket “he would undoubtedly have died”.

Duggan’s actions that night were extreme and shocking – the victim went outside to speak to the group about the fact they had turned off the water supply resulting in the defendant shooting him with a powerful weapon.

Fortunately, the victim’s mobile phone took the brunt of the shot and, as a result of this, he survived. This is remarkable – had that phone not been in his pocket at that time he would undoubtedly have died.

Whilst I hope that the conclusion of this case today brings about a degree of closure for the victim I am fully aware of the impact this case has had no him and the fact that the devastating injuries he sustained will affect him for the rest of his life.

Despite making good progress he still requires treatment for his injuries – including further operations and rehabilitation. The nightmare is far from over. – Det Insp Gary McIntyre from Cheshire Police
