NEW YORK (KTVZ) – Sgt. Ryan Craig was shot in the head in Afghanistan in 2010. His helmet slowed down the bullet just enough for him to survive the attack.
On Thursday, he was reunited with that helmet for the first time.
“It saved my life,” Craig said, holding his helmet in his hands for the first time in four years. “As you can see, it stopped the bullet.”
He doesn’t remember much of the day that almost took his life.
“I was on a rooftop. And then I woke up in Maryland,” Craig recalled.
After the attack, Craig’s helmet was sent to the government for analysis. The results help officials to improve gear in the future.
