The Tooth that Saved a Soldier’s Life-Truth!
Summary of eRumor:
A story with pictures of an Army sergeant in Iraq who didn’t realize he’d been shot by a terrorist.
The bullet from the terrorist’s pistol hit the soldier in the face but he didn’t realize it at first and was able to participate in taking the terrorist into custody.
Later at the hospital it was shown that the bullet had hit him in such a way that a front tooth took the energy of the impact and saved his life.
According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, this is a true account from Las Vegas dentist Dr. AnnaLee Kruyer who served with an Army dental team in Iraq for a year.
