Woman’s Underwire Bra Saves Her from Hunter’s Stray Bullet

Who would have thought that a pair of bra is capable of saving someone’s life?

Believe it or not, a woman from Germany escaped death when her underwire bra deflected a hunter’s stray bullet. The 42-year-old unnamed woman was spending the holiday in Mecklenberg-Western Pomerania and was out cycling with her husband when the unbelievable incident happened.

While the couple was crossing the path of a wild boar hunt near the town of Gadebusch, the woman suddenly felt a pain in her chest. Apparently, a hunter’s bullet hit her but her bra was able to deflect it, saving her from certain danger.

“I felt a sudden pain in my chest,” the woman told the police.

“I looked down to see that the wire in my bra was bent,” she added.

The woman sustained a big bruise on her chest but was left unharmed.

The bullet that hit the woman is a 6,5mm bullet which can kill at long distances and travels in high velocity. Without a doubt, the woman’s bra, which has been surrendered to the police for evidence, miraculously saved her life.

Zimbabwe Lifts Hunting Ban after 10 Days

Less than two weeks following the controversial death of Cecil the lion, the government of Zimbabwe has decided to lift the ban against big-game hunting.

The killing of Cecil, Zimbabwe’s well-loved lion and a main attraction at Hwange National Park, sparked international outrage prompting officials to suspend hunting on August 1.

Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority spokesperson Caroline Washaya-Moyo told NBC news that the ban still applies in the farmland where Cecil was killed and several other farms where suspected illegal hunting occurs.

Washaya-Moyo announced that all hunts would be subject to stricter rules.

How much does a ‘basurero’ (garbage collector) earn from his job?

For 51-year-old Tatay Cristito Quimado, it is actually around Php500 per day – and he uses this money wisely to send his five kids to school! Last April, one of them graduated from college, and this superb dad could not help but cry over their collective success.

In a feature video on GMA Public Affairs’ #DigiDokyu, Tatay Cristito cried as he admitted that he tries his best to send his children to school because in his poverty, education is the only thing that he could ever give them as a form of inheritance.

Alas-tres pa lang ng umaga, namamasura na ang 51-anyos na si Tatay Cristito. Mahigit dalawang dekada na niya itong ginagawa hanggang sa nito lang Abril, napagtapos na niya ang anak sa kolehiyo! Maantig sa kanyang kuwento ng pagsusumikap at sakripisyo sa video na ito!” the video was captioned.

Poor as he might be, Tatay Cristito was proud that he was able to send his daughter, Jenny Rose Quimado, to college.

But Jenny Rose’s graduation isn’t the end of Tatay Cristito’s financial challenges as a dad because he still has to send the rest of his children to college as well.

Sa awa ng Diyos, isa na ang napatapos ko. Apat pa. Hanggang malakas ako, pipilitin kong makatapos sila. Iyong pag-aaral nila, hindi ko pinababayaan kasi iyon lang ang ano [maibibigay] ko sa kanila, makatapos sila,” he added.

Mahirap kasi marami akong anak, e. Pero kahit mahirap kinakaya ko. Minsan nga, wala kaming makain, e.

Tatay Cristito admits to having mixed emotions every time he hears someone ask his children what their father did for a living; however, his children are always proud of his job!

Pag tinatanong, ‘Ano’ng trabaho ng tatay mo?’ (Ang isasagot niya ay,) ‘Basurero.’ Hindi siya nahihiya,” he said.

Indeed, Jenny Rose is proud of her father.

Proud ako kasi napagtapos niya ako sa pagbabasura niya and alam kong mapapagtapos niya rin ang mga kapatid ko,” she said.

Nagpapasalamat po ako sa Diyos kasi siya iyong naging tatay ko. Kasi hindi naman po masama iyong trabaho niya at marangal po siya, kahit maliit po iyong kinikita niya, at least, wala po siyang ginagawang masama.

Alleged ‘Tanim Bala’ Investigation Results Released, Bullet Found in Bag Still Wrapped in Plastic

Published

By

This week, netizens were angered by the recent ‘tanim bala’ incident at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), especially because such incidents were often linked to the previous administration, that of Ninoy Aquino’s son, former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.

Even before President Rodrigo Duterte took office, he vowed to make the ‘tanim bala’ perpetrators eat the bullets they ‘planted’ in the passengers’ luggage!

After this warning, the incidents of bullets found inside passengers’ luggage has certainly gone down and if there were any found, these no longer resulted in the passengers missing their flight because they were no longer detained. Instead, they were just asked to sign a logbook and ‘surrender’ the bullet found in their luggage; then, they were allowed to go.

But the recent incident with Kristine Bumanglag-Moran last June 15 seemed to show that the ‘tanim bala’ modus operandi was far from over! This has angered netizens who called for the Malacañang Palace to look into the matter.

A lot of netizens expressed excitement over the issue, saying they are expecting to see a video of someone or some people from NAIA who will be eating a bullet.

SAP Bong Go issued a marching order for the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) to quickly investigate the matter.

Today, MIAA and the Department of Transportation (DOTr) released a joint statement, announcing the release of the investigation results.

Based on the investigation, it was revealed that Bumanglag-Moran, her mother, and her daughter passed without questions through the initial security screening at Gate 2. But her brown bag was searched after the x-ray operator saw what looked like ammunition inside.

The statement stressed out that at this point, the bag was still wrapped in plastic.

A baggage inspector and a police personnel were asked to assist the operator in inspecting the bag. Pictures were also taken for evidence and documentation. A screening personnel also took a video.

After Bumanglag-Moran took the plastic wrapper, the bullet was later found inside the bag. It was live ammunition for caliber 9mm.

Although they were assured that they are free to go after signing the logbook, Bumanglag-Moran created a scene which she also admitted in her Facebook post.

The DOTr-MIAA firmly maintains that there was no irregularity on the actions of screening personnel, who simply strictly followed standard operating procedures,” the statement read.

They also added that background research showed that Bumanglag-Moran’s father is a retired Marine while his brother is in the Philippine National Police (PNP); however, the statement did not expound on this connection.

We ask the public to refrain from making assumptions as investigations are being conducted. Let us also bear in mind that there are airport personnel —- hard working Filipino workers like the rest of us —- whose livelihood, name, and dignity are put to question because of unfair allegations,” the statement ended.

Last June 13, Wednesday, Tatay Eduardo S. Matusalem, driver of RMC Taxi UWN 492, was searching for a passenger after dropping off a foreigner when he noticed that there was a piece of luggage left inside his cab.

Thinking he might not be able to find his last passenger if he goes back to where he dropped the man off, he thought about bringing the bag to TV5’s Action Center to turn it over to Raffy Tulfo; however, the center was already closed for the day.

Instead of getting back on the road and trying to find the owner on his own, he found a parking spot near the TV station and spent the night there waiting for morning when the station opens. He didn’t mind only having earned Php700 that night, knowing he had to return the luggage to its rightful owner. He didn’t even try to open the bag.

By morning, he was able to turn over the bag to the station’s “Solian ng Bayan” program. When the hosts opened the bag, Tatay Eduardo was shocked to find that the bag had a lot of money inside! In fact, the bag contained元240,000 (Yuan) equivalent to Php2,001,766.63!

Thanks to the IDs in the bag, TV5 was able to find its rightful owner, Chinese national Junyi Tao. Junyi immediately went to the station where he met with Tatay Eduardo. He admitted that he thought he would never get back his bag and his money.

According to Junyi, when he realized he left the bag in the cab, he immediately went to the police station to report the incident but the cops who went to the spot where he alighted the cab found no leads because the CCTVs in the area were not working.

Junyi immediately gave Tatay Eduardo Php10,000 as reward and invited him and his family for dinner.
