CALGARY - The victim of a shooting at the hands of her ex-boyfriend said Wednesday her breast implants saved her from serious harm.

"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, destroyed her implants.

"They were gone," Likness told defence lawyer Adriano Iovinelli.

But she said after recovering from her wounds, she underwent further surgery.

"I had to wait some time, but yes, I had some put back in."

Chora faces charges of attempted murder and aggravated assault with a weapon in connection with the Jan. 2, 2006, incident.

The 61-year-old also faces two firearms offences, as well as allegations he broke into an elderly couple's home after the shooting and confined them at gunpoint.

Likness told Crown prosecutor Britta Kristensen she had driven Chora around for several hours before she got frustrated with him and decided to drop him off.

Likness said she pulled onto a side street at Chora's request, and after he got out and walked about five metres she heard what sounded like two shots.

She said she jumped from the still-running car and made her way to a nearby restaurant, before she was airlifted by STARS to Foothills Hospital.

She's lucky. A ruptured implant can deform your breast.

The bullet travelled through both her implants, so if the implants weren't there, wouldn't the bullet have missed her?

It grazed the chest bone so it was just a really oblique angle. It could have broken her chest plate otherwise.

The way the article describes it leaves it fairly unexplained. I think a diagram would help us to better understand the breast physics.

By the way learn how to spell SHIRIKOV who is this shirakov


Amazingly on his first shift Kassian would have had a breakaway if Kesler knew how to pass. And he still got switched with Weiss. And note it is "Weiss" not "Wise".

Why would you want to get new ones put in? Wouldn't it just emphasis the bullet hole scars on her breasts?

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

"Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens & the earth were joined together as one united piece, then We (Allah) parted them? And We have made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?" (Qur'an 21:30)

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” (David Rockefeller)
