An elderly woman, 82, has reportedly escaped death during a farm attack after a bullet missed her and got lodged in her Bible.

It was reported that the attack occured on Saturday night outside Mahikeng in South Africa. Bettie Nel, 82, was woken by noises and encountered two attackers in the passage of the house. After throwing a doorstop at them, a shot was fired and the suspects fled. The bullet missed Nel and hit the Bible on the side table next to her bed.
