A 37-year-old man says his school-issued laptop may have saved his life during Friday's deadly shooting at a Florida airport, the Miami Herald reports. Steve Frappier, a school counselor from Atlanta, flew into Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport for an education conference. After shoving his laptop in his backpack, he debarked the plane and headed for baggage claim, according to CNN. When a gunman opened fire, Frappier hit the deck like everyone else. He says he was "like a tortoise with the backpack on me."
While on the ground, Frappier says he felt something hit his back. He figured it was a piece of luggage falling on him, but when everything was all over, he checked his backpack and found a bullet hole in his Macbook Pro. FBI agents later found the bullet in one of his backpack's pockets. “If I didn’t have that backpack on, the bullet would have shot me between the shoulders,” Frappier tells the Herald.. “It still doesn’t feel real.”
