A bar manager cheated death in a knife attack when his beer belly protected his vital organs.
Doctors told Snaz Martin, 43, he was "almost certainly" saved by his midriff after a drunk customer stabbed him with a three-inch blade.
"The doctor said I could have died but my organs were protected by a bit of extra fat," said the tubby landlord, who runs the Britannia Inn in Gillingham, Kent, U.K.
"I'm not massive by any stretch of the imagination — I only weigh 182 pounds. But I do have a beer belly and they're saying that's what saved me."
Martin said the knife just missed his spleen and other organs.
