Close call: Iraqi journalist’s GoPro deflects a sniper’s bullet


Journalist, Ammar Alwaely, was working in Mosul Iraq, when a sniper’s bullet hit his GoPro camera. The camera, which was a gift from one of his co-workers, almost certainly saved Mr. Alwaely’s life. Ammar received treatment for minor cuts, but was otherwise unharmed.

Luckily, the bullet hit a GoPro camera which Ammar was wearing round his neck – almost certainly saving his life.
