(KOMONEWS) — SEATTLE - A pair of eyeglasses is credited with saving the life of a South Seattle teenage girl, even though the bullet lodged between her eyes.
The photograph is graphic: 16-year-old Alonza Bryant lying in a hospital bed with a bullet slug lodged in the bridge of her nose. In another photo, that part of the slug is protruding, yet she is awake, alert and speaking.

"I could have been dead. I'm glad that the glasses saved me," said the teenager. "I fell asleep with my glasses on, and the glasses saved where the bullet was."
