Teen's Braces Saves His Life From Bullet

A teenager’s braces are being credited for possibly saving his life. Police said Anthony Pittman, 18, of Pontiac is recovering after a bullet hit him in the mouth on Wednesday.

Police said a .45-caliber bullet struck Pittman’s braces, which fragmented the bullet.

“We believe what happened is that the bullet was split, in part by the braces, so it fragmented and continued into his mouth, tongue and teeth,” said Pontiac police Capt. Wendy Keelty. “But because it was fragmented, it didn’t penetrate through the back of his neck.”
