(Newser) – What a boob. Hefty silicone breast implants saved a Russian woman's life after she was stabbed by her husband. Her large, "size 4" implants—obtained at the request of her hubby—stopped the knife from entering her heart, doctors told Pravda. Moscow surgeons repaired the wound. (Unfortunately, not all boob jobs come with such a happy ending.)
