NBC News reports that an underwire bra may have saved a German woman from serious injury this week when it stopped a hunter’s ricocheting bullet.

Authorities say the unnamed 41-year-old was taking a bike ride with her husband on Friday when they accidentally entered the site of an active boar hunt. From UPI:

During a break, the woman felt a sudden sharp pain in her chest, soon realizing the underwire from her bra deflected a bullet.

The couple immediately alerted the alleged shooter of the accident after he was spotted at a neighboring farm.

“Those in charge of the hunt broke it up straight away” area police spokesperson Andre Falke said.

According to NBC News, police believe the bullet first struck a young wild boar before rebounding off the animal and striking the woman.

The hunter is now being investigated on suspicion of negligent injury, The Local reports.
