Brisbane (dpa) - The attack was very old style, the rescue very modern: With his smartphone, an Australian has fended off an arrow, which had a neighbor shot at him. The 39 and 43-year-old men had clashed in the hippie community Nimbin. Suddenly the younger one started with a bow and arrow on the other. The 43-year-old wanted to photograph the scene with his cell phone when the attacker fired an arrow at him. The bullet pierced the cell phone but got stuck. The man got away with a scratch wound on his chin. The attacker was arrested.
