On Friday Steve Frappier’s MacBook Pro probably saved his life, taking a bullet that was meant for him during the shooting at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida, US.
The MacBook was sat inside of his backpack where it was able to stop the bullet that the shoot towards his direction.
He explained more on CNN’s AC360 show with the following:
“The backpack saved my life. (I) dropped and the backpack was still on my back and I was turned in such a way where that at one point when the shooter shot toward my direction … there was a bullet that ricocheted.”
“I felt something hit my back. It was only later when I went to the bathroom to check myself out that the bullet had entered my backpack, hit my laptop and then later when I gave my backpack over to the FBI for investigation they found the bullet in the pocket of my backpack.”
It’s quite an amazing story which was likely made possible due to the MacBook’s all-metal unibody, however, it’s not a feature that is only available on the MacBook and you will often find stories like this with a range of other products involved.
