Note: if you’re going to use this story as an excuse to not wear a seat belt, you’re probably not very smart.

This young woman was in a horrific car wreck where her car flipped seven times and crashed into a tree and her seat belt saved her life.

However, the impact of a car crash of course would make anything meant to hold you in place work a little harder and the seat belt actually sliced through her abdomen how she describes “like a sword.”

She has made a full recovery, though she does have a gnarly scar and actually doesn’t have abdomen muscles anymore.

Though she is still getting used to the new ways she has to work around her body, there’s no changing the fact her seat belt is the reason she’s still here today!
