Man Credits Cigarette Lighter With Saving His Life
October 09, 2018
Dropping his lighter may have kept this man from being shot.
A Georgia man is recovering after someone opened fire outside his home and he narrowly escaped being shot in the head. Tyrone Alexander was at his southwest Atlanta home and says he was about to smoke a cigarette, but dropped his lighter at the exact same time bullets crashed through his front porch.
“If I had not bent over I probably would have got shot in the temple,” Alexander tells WSBTV. A bullet did graze his head, but it could have been much worse if he hadn’t stopped to pick up that lighter. And he’s expected to make a full recovery from his injury.
