While many of us feel like we couldn’t survive without our cell phones, that may have literally been the case for one Nokia owner.

A Nokia saved a man in Afghanistan from being shot, according to Peter Skillman, who was on the team that created the phone.

Skillman stated that the phone was passed to him by a coworker and didn’t provide any other information, making it pretty much impossible to confirm.  But he’s a pretty smart guy. In fact, he lists his current job as “GM of Smart Things” at Microsoft.

Whether it’s true or not, the photo is pretty impressive.

And, Nokia phones have a reputation for being nearly destructible, as demonstrated by many, many memes.
