CALGARY - From Anderson Cooper to the UK’s Daily Mail, the case of a woman who told a Calgary court her breast implants saved her from serious injury has gone viral.
Staff from the CNN show hosted by Cooper contacted Alberta Justice about doing an interview with the prosecutor in the case.
Meanwhile, online sites across the globe have run articles about the case, reported exclusively Thursday in the Calgary Sun.
Headlines such as “woman lucky to be alive after her fake breasts stopped a bullet” and “bulletproof breasts?” can be found through a Google search of Fernando (Frank) Chora’s trial.
And while Eileen Liknes never claimed the implants saved her life — as some websites have suggested — she did testify they prevented more serious harm.
Liknes testified she was visiting Calgary from her B.C. home when she and Chora, her ex-boyfriend, went for a long drive in her borrowed car.
