GoPro Saves Journalist's Life

ISIS has been all but driven out of it's former stronghold of Mosul by Iraqi military forces. But there are still some stragglers, including snipers hiding in the shadows. One such sniper took aim at a journalist covering the conflict, and nearly took his life, were it not for his trusty GoPro camera...


Journalist Ammar Alwaely was in western Mosul and thought he was safe after the military cleared a neighborhood. Suddenly, a shot rang out and his GoPro that he was wearing around his neck disintegrated. The sniper’s bullet struck the camera, preventing Ammar from being hit in the chest with the gunshot. The bullet was fractions of an inch from potentially killing Ammar.
