an Oh Myyy Property

Not only are phones fun, they can save your life.

That is, if you're ever attacked by a man wielding a bow and arrow.


An unnamed man from Nimbin in New South Wales, Australia, arrived home at 9 AM on Wednesday, March 13. When he pulled into the driveway, he found another man waiting for him in his front lawn.

With a bow and arrow.

The pair apparently knew each other, though it seems unlikely they were on good terms.

When the victim held up his phone to take a picture of the armed trespasser, the bow-wielding man fired his arrow towards him.

In a miraculous stroke of luck, the arrow pierced nothing but phone!


Twitter made countless jokes to memorialize the poor phone who gave up its life to save its owner.





Though the unnamed man's own phone knocked him in the chin, causing "a small laceration that didn't require medical treatment," he was able to walk away from the attack relatively unscathed.

Police responded to the scene and arrested the 39-year-old assailant.



Authorities will be charging the perpetrator with "armed with intent to commit an indictable offense, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and malicious damage."

He is scheduled to appear in court on Monday, April 15, 2019.



So the next time your mother tells you to put your phone down for a minute, just remind her that scrolling Twitter and watching cat videos could very well save your life!
