A Canadian woman says her surgically enhanced breasts saved her life when her ex-boyfriend shot her.

"My implants took the brunt of the force," Eileen Likness said at the man's trial.

Likness said a bullet fired from Fernando (Frank) Chora's 9mm handgun grazed her right arm before travelling through both her surgically enhanced breasts and through her left forearm.

She said the projectile, which entered her right breast, grazed her chest plate and exited her left breast, according to her testimony.

The projectile's path through her body all but deflated her boosted breasts, she said. "They were gone," Likness told defence lawyer.
