NYC cab rider returning from JFK credits the vehicle's headrest for saving her life after a random bullet shattered the back windshield of the yellow cab she was riding in
(NBC New York) A New York City cab rider is crediting the vehicle's headrest for saving her life after a random bullet shattered the back windshield of the yellow car, missing her by just a few inches.
Hannah Warnaar tells NBC New York in an exclusive interview that she was "pretty tired" and was on her way home from JFK International Airport just after midnight Monday. She was scrolling through her phone in the back of the cab when she heard a bang.
"Some glass hit me in the face so I ducked down. I realized that I was bleeding," Warnaar recalled. She didn't immediately realize that a bullet had entered the back of the car and the cab driver thought the loud noise was fireworks.
Then the driver turned around and saw that the back windshield had been fully shattered, so he pulled off the Van Wyck Expressway and called police.
