U.S. Marine Gets the Luckiest Escape of His Life


This video shows a U.S. marine get shot in the helmet by a Taliban sniper during a raid in the Now Zad district, Helmand Province in 2013. The soldier had the luckiest escape of his life when the bullet hit his helmet in what could have easily been a fatal shot.

You can see and hear the impact at 0:45 in this video. Its a good thing he was wearing that kevlar reinforced helmet.
