Yesterday's awful Michigan shooting spree left seven people dead. Robert Poore wasn't one of them—despite being shot directly in the face. Why? The bullet hit his artificial nose and bounced off.

The titanium plate embedded in Poore's face was a vestige of childhood cancer treatment—a harrowing portion of his life, I'm sure, but one that ended up saving him from a gunshot to the head. So, I guess it all evens out, in a way. Poore was admitted to the hospital for minor scrapes, but left the same day. I wonder if he'll need a new plate now? [Wood TV via HuffPo]
