Just recently, a Florida woman made headlines after she was attacked by her ex-fiance’s new girlfriend. While crime of passion is not uncommon, what makes the story bizarre is that she survived because her salinebreast implant prevented the pocket knife from piercing her heart and lungs.
If this story sounds weird, hold yourself from more bizarre news involving breast implants.
1. Snake dies after biting a woman’s chest.
In 2011, a model from Israel was attempting a stupid act live on air: kiss a snake. Unfortunately, the boa constrictor died after it bit her surgically-enhanced breast; reports showed the cause of death was silicone poisoning.
Surprisingly, the model did not suffer from any serious problem although she was rushed to the hospital right after the incident and was given an anti-tetanus shot.
2. Politician raffles breast implants to raise funds for campaign.
In Venezuela, a politician raised money for his campaign by raffling off breast implants. Gustavo Rojas defended his action and said that while people raffle televisions and other appliances, he decided to offer cosmetic surgery which he said was far more interesting.
“It is an interesting prize…I’m not showing disrespect to anyone,” Rojas said.

A Los Angeles woman was shot in the chest but survived when her breast implant stopped the bullet from reaching her heart.
When Lydia Carranza was brought to the hospital and underwent a CT scan, doctors were amazed to realize that the bullet fragments were millimeters away from reaching her heart and other vital organs.
Carranza was at her office when a co-worker’s husband fired at her and his wife. The wife died during the shooting incident.

A 24-year-old Bulgarian woman survived a head-on collision when her 40DD breast implants absorbed most of the impact, preventing fatal injuries on her ribcage, lungs, heart, and other vital organs.
While she survived the accident, her silicone breast implants did not. A police officer said the devices worked like airbags—they absorbed the impact and protected the victim’s ribcage.
5. Woman accused of faking breast cancer to get implants.
