Taking Pictures With An iPad Just Saved This Man’s Life [Video]


This man's face is about to get smashed by a softball

Taking pictures with an iPad is a no-no. I don’t care if you’re Spike Lee, just don’t do it. Ever.

The only time it is acceptable to take pictures in a public place with your iPad, is if it’s going to save your life by preventing a softball from ramming through your skull.

That’s exactly what happened to this older gentleman at a University of Northern Iowa softball game. He was trying to capture the fierce action of the game, when an errant foul ball came screaming at his face. The backstop netting couldn’t stop the ball in time, so his iPad stepped up and intercepted the ball to save the man’s life.

Check out the video:

Obviously the guy didn’t learn his lesson because he kept snapping pics like he was on assignment for Sports Illustrated, but maybe he’ll at least add a bulletproof case for his next excursion.
