Alonza Bryant, a Seattle teenager, said that the glasses she was wearing helped save her life during a shooting.

Bryant, 16, survived a drive-by shooting that sent bullets into her home in Seattle, reported KOMO News.

“I could have been dead. I’m glad that the glasses saved me,” Bryant said. “I fell asleep with my glasses on, and the glasses saved where the bullet was.”

She was shown with a wound on the bridge of her nose.

Local reports said that a group of people drove by her home at 9:40 p.m. local time and started firing.

“I heard a big bang and then my nose started bleeding,” she told KIRO-TV.

“I don’t know why somebody did this to me… to our family–shoot our house,” she continued.
