London, Oct 31 : A British man couldn't believe his luck when his nose saved him from almost certain death - it stopped a bullet fired at close range.
Daniel Greenwood, 19, was visiting pals when he got himself in a row after a man called David Cummins.
Cummins, 21, shot his victim with a 9mm Cuno Melcher gun when he tried to snatch a gold chain from around his victim's neck at a house in Manchester on March 22 this year.
But thankfully Daniel's nose blocked the bullet from piercing his head and saved him, reports the Sun. An amazing X-ray shows the round lodged in the bridge bone of his hooter, which the doctor removed without any problem.
Doctors told him he could have sustained terrible injuries had the bullet gone either side of his nostrils. Daniel still suffers flashbacks, sleepless nights and headaches.
