Bible Blocks Bullets, Saves Man's Life

TODAY TODAY

(KCEN) -- A city bus driver in Dayton, Ohio is living proof that the Bible can save lives.

Ricky Wagoner had stopped his bus to fix a mechanical problem when he was violently attacked by three teenagers.

He told police the last thing he remembers is one of his attackers saying, "It's time to kill a polar bear to get into a club."

He was stabbed in the arm and shot once in the leg and twice in the chest, yet managed to fight off the teens and grab the gun.

The bus driver had a copy of the New Testament in his shirt pocket, and it deflected the bullets and saved his life. Investigators say that Wagoner said he just started carrying the book in his pocket last week.

Investigators said he's in good condition and is expected to survive.
