In a bracing reminder of what armed servicemen are dealing with in war-torn locations, this viral video displays both the horror and sheer luck that can come from a combat situation.
Captured on helmet cam, US Marines in southern Afghanistan are moving through a corridor out into the open when a sniper engages and starts firing. With a piercing crack sound, one of the men takes a bullet to the head but is saved by his helmet. The men retreat to take cover and reflect on the luck of the marine whose life was in the balance.
Warning: This video contains tense scenes and brief strong language.
