A man caught up in the Paris Terror Attacks has had his life spared after his smart phone took a bullet intended for him.

“I was crossing the street and straightaway, boom, it exploded right in front of me”, said the man, only identified as Sylvestre (below).

“Everything was blown to bits and I felt stuff flying around and I left, I fell and then I got back up.

“This is the phone that took the hit, it’s what saved my life. Otherwise my head would have been blown to bits."

Sylvestre went on to say he was hit in the foot and a bullet had also grazed his side.
