A Russian woman has her giant silicon implant to thank for saving her life, after it prevented her husband from wounding her with a knife, reports ABC News.The Moscow resident was reportedly stabbed by her husband during a dispute. The knife didn’t reach her heart, instead becoming lodged in the silicon implant.

The Daily Mail reports that the woman’s husband had requested she get her breasts enlarged five years ago. The expensive surgery used an elite kind of implant that even retained its shape when the knife plunged into it.

The woman has since had her implant replaced with a new one.
