Default 16 y/o girl's glasses help stop a bullet

This girl is lucky. The news media probably don't realize the bullet would have probably stopped anyway, but she is a very lucky girl. Sad that she is a victim in the crossfire though.

Poor kid. Glad it turned out well. It's too bad someone didn't return fire and save us some tax dollars when they go to jail...if they catch them. She's lucky the round had slowed down a lot by the time it hit her. A few more fps and that wouldn't have ended well. What a random shot though huh? Directly to the bridge of the nose yikes! Again, glad she's ok.
