An Australian man is alive after his smartphone shielded him from a flying arrow. Police in New South Wales say the 43-year-old man pulled up into his driveway in Nimbin and noticed someone with a bow and arrow standing outside his property. Police say the resident held up his phone to take a photo of the suspect when he fired an arrow at him. The arrow struck the phone, stopping it within inches of the man's face. The 39-year-old suspect was later arrested at the scene on assault charges.
