A video posted to the Funker530 website shows an American soldier that was caught in a brutal firefight and managed to escape without serious injury even after being shot four times by automatic machine gun fire.
The video, shot from the soldier’s GoPro camera, was uploaded to YouTube and is said to have taken place in Afghanistan while his unit was conducting an overwatch mission and gathering intelligence.
These are the soldier’s own words from the Funker website:
“I got a hit a total of 4 times. My helmet cam died and i made it down the mountain on my own. I was also hit in the side of my helmet and my eye pro was shot off of my face. We were doing overwatch on the village to recon and gather intel. I was point, heading down the face of the hill with the LT. when we got hit. The rest of the squad was pinned down by machine gun fire. I didn’t start the video until a few mins into the firefight for obvious reasons. I came out into the open to draw fire so my squad could get to safety. A round struck the tube by my hand of the 203 grenade launcher which knocked it out of my hands. When I picked the rifle back up it was still functional, but the grenade launcher tube had a nice sized 7.62 cal bullet hole in it and was rendered useless.”
