I don't know if any of you heard, but recently there was some soldier who accidentally stepped on a mine while wandering through some battlefield with his platoon... I don't really remember much of the story except that, he stepped on the mine, and threw himself on the mine to shield his team.
Apparently, he didn't even get hurt at all.
I'm not positive, but from what I understand, the bomb went of the right way, but the guy didn't take any damage. Nor did his team.
How the fuck did that happen?
My best guess is he was lucky enough to have maybe his gun strapped over himself so instead of blowing a hole in him, the gun took all the damage and transferred it evenly enough over his body that instead it just launched him up or something.
