How an iPhone stopped a bullet and saved a woman’s life during the Las Vegas massacre

A woman’s life was miraculously saved by her mobile phone which blocked a bullet during the Las Vegas massacre.

The unidentified woman told a taxi driver on her way home that her rose gold iPhone had saved her life and took a picture.

The photo of the device shows the back of the iPhone completely shattered after being hit by a single bullet.

No details have emerged about how or where the woman was holding the phone while fleeing the scene of the worst mass shooting in US history.

Las Vegas shooting: What we know so far

Fifty-nine were killed and more than 500 wounded when a man, named as Stephen Paddock, opened fire on a concert crowd opposite the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas.

Thousands of fans were forced to flee in terror after machine gun fire broke out during the country music festival just after 10.30pm local time.

Video taken during the attack shows a packed crowd ducking for cover as the bullets rained down in the middle of a set by country musician Jason Aldean.

Long bursts of automatic gunfire can be heard amid the screams and shouts of people trying to flee.

Police say Paddock started firing down on the crowd of 22,000 people for at least 11 minutes at the concert from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel.

Paddock killed himself before officers stormed Room 135 in the gold-coloured glass skyscraper.

At least 23 weapons, including multiple rifles, were found in Paddock’s hotel room.

A further 19 firearms, explosives and several rounds of ammunition were later found in his Mesquite home, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

Las Vegas sheriff Joseph Lombardo said he is “absolutely” confident investigators will establish why the multimillionaire carried out the attack – the deadliest mass shooting in US history.
