London, November 20 : An 11-year-old, who suffered a car hit, owes her life to her school bag crammed with her PE kit and three bags of crisps.
Ayse Kinsman, who had been walking back home with her twin sister, was rammed into after the driver of the car jumped a red light.
Ayse, who was flung into the air after being hit by the car's bonnet, was able to avoid serious injury since her heavy school satchel containing the crisps felt the hard-hitting impact.
As per the paramedics the little girl from Bodmin, Cornwall, could have even lost her life or suffered serious damage had it not been for the bag.
"The car hit my bag and all the stuff inside took the full force. It was like wearing a bullet-proof vest," the Daily Express quoted her as saying.
Ayse had chose to ignore her mum's advice to wear the bad on her back and had instead flung it over her shoulder cushioning her bottom when the vehicle crashed into her.
Mum Sally added: "Sometimes I tell her off for not carrying it properly, but I'm so relieved that she didn't listen."
