A woman was hit by a car and doctors know exactly why she survived.

She should write her mother a note to say thank you.

Sarah Foster was standing on the side of the road smoking a cigarette when she was hit by an out-of-control Mini Cooper.

The impact would have killed her were it not for her size 38JJ breasts, which allowed her to “bounce like a trampoline” off the oncoming vehicle.

In the aftermath of the incident, Ms Foster knew she had been lucky to survive, but she didn’t understand the enormity of what had just happened until one doctor laid it down straight.

“Mrs. Foster, we need to tell you, you are really lucky. I don’t mean to sound rude, but if you didn’t have these boobs, you’d be dead now.”

“If you were a skinny person – don’t take that the wrong way – the impact would have killed you straight away.”

As well as saving her life, Foster’s boobs kept her injury free. Aside from a few cuts and bruises, she was completely unharmed.

“My boobs smashed the glass on the windscreen, and I just bounced and rolled all the way over the car,” Ms Foster reports.
