Bulletproof bra saves woman during animal hunt

07 August 2015, 15:21

Gadebusch - The metal part of a bra saved a female tourist from suffering greater injury when she was hit by a stray piece of ammunition during a hunt in northern Germany, police reported Friday.

The 41-year-old woman from North Rhine-Westphalia was cycling through a rape field in the north-eastern state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania with a male companion when she suddenly felt pain.

"According to our enquiries so far, she was hit by an object in the breast area," a police spokesperson in the port of Wismar said.

A wild boar hunt was taking place in the area at the time of the accident. The woman from the city of Guetersloh suffered only bruising. A piece of ammunition was found on the bra's metal wire.

Police were questioning one of the hunters on suspicion of bodily injury caused by negligence.

The local newspaper, Schweriner Volkszeitung, reported on the incident on Friday, saying that it took place on Sunday.

The hunt was stopped and the hunter's rifle was seized. It is possible that a piece of shot ricocheted during the hunt.

A dead young boar was also found during the investigation after the incident.
