An iPhone may have saved woman's life in Manchester attack

Lisa Bridgett, 45, was speaking on her iPhone following the Ariana Grande concert when an explosion sent a steel nut hurling towards her head. An attacker, identified as Salman Ramadan Abedi, detonated a shrapnel-laden improvised explosive device at the exit as concertgoers were leaving. The horrific attack resulted in the loss of 22 lives and injured 116.

Bridgett's husband Steve recently revealed on Facebook that her iPhone may have saved her life. The steel nut hit her finger, went into her phone, eventually coming to rest her in nose. Steve believes that the phone likely slowed it down and diverted it.

Well here goes.....Lisa is in a positive mood and feels very lucky to be alive, witnessing first hand what could of been ! She has suffered multiple injuries including losing the middle finger from her left hand, which was caused by a steel nut that hit her finger then into her phone and eventually coming to rest in her nose.....she has a fractured ankle caused by shrapnel, and also a Large bullet hole wound to her thigh.....other cuts and bruises as you can well imagine.....the fact she was on her phone at the time as probably saved her life (thanks Vickie Lord) the nut has hit her phone which has more than likely not only diverted it, but also slowed it down considerably....her nose is fine as the nut entered through her cheek, so just a scar to deal with! 

Thank you for everyone's wishes and offers of means a lot xxx
