Check out this insane video of the world’s luckiest Marine who managed to survive a very close encounter with enemy sniper fire.
The Marine was lucky enough to be alive after getting hit in the helmet by Taliban sniper fire in Afghanistan. The incident was caught on one of the Marines’ helmet cam.
In the video you can hear the bullet hit the helmet. Luckily, the bullet didn’t hit anyone else, considering it could have deflected off the helmet and hit someone else.
They all should be thankful to be alive considering they were in a narrow corridor that would be an easy target for a sniper to shoot into. They all reacted pretty calmly in the situation, but that could have been due to the disbelief that they managed to survive and had no idea that there was an enemy sniper targeting them.
The attack was caught on camera during a joint helicopter raid in the Nawzad district, Helmand Province.
