Lisa Somerville evaded death after her padded bra stopped her ribs from piercing her heart in a car crash, reports the Daily Mail.

The 28-year-old was driving home in a violent rainstorm on a notorious stretch of road when she lost control of her car and ploughed head-on into another car coming from the opposite direction.

The mother of one said "I was driving home from work, stupidly not wearing my seat-belt, when I lost control of my car and crashed on a slippery wet road."

"I was in a bad way - but I was still breathing. As doctors peeled back my clothes to get a better look at the damage, they noticed the skewered chicken fillets inside my bra."

"I was 'doubling up' - wearing four altogether - so that was what gave me the extra protection that saved my life." she added.

Somerville, who has an eight-year-old daughter Jodi, added: "I couldn't believe my luck, or the irony that something I'd hated for so long had saved my life."

She revealed that she had worn chicken fillets since she was a teen.

 "I hated my chicken fillets and constantly feared they'd fall out at the most embarrassing moment," she said.

"But that night, for the first time in my life, I was grateful for them." she further added.

After the crash, the mum-of-one paid 4,000 pounds, in September last year, to go under the knife and enhance her breasts from AAA to 30E.

She said, "I'm ten times more confident and happier than I've ever been, I'm even giving my new boobs a birthday celebration to mark their anniversary I love them so much."

"But I'll always be thankful to the chicken fillets that saved my life." she added.
