A 54-year-old Orange Park man credits two small Bibles in his shirt pocket for saving his life when they stopped a bullet.
The man, whose name was withheld because his attackers are still at large, told police that two men who he didn’t recognize ambushed him with a rifle as he carried bags of garbage to a trash bin. The two men fled in opposite directions and have not been arrested.
Other than a red mark and a pain in his chest, he was not injured, The Florida Times-Union reported Tuesday.
The man said he was carrying two New Testament Bibles in his shirt pocket to give to friends. Police took the Bibles as evidence.
