Police were shocked after they responded to a call in Las Talitas, Argentina. A young boy had survived after being struck by a stray bullet. In what is being referred to as the ‘New Years miracle' in Argentina, the young boy's crucifix necklace supposedly deflected the stray bullet, leaving him with only superficial wounds.

9-year-old Argentinian boy, Tiziano, was playing outside his house with his cousins on New Years Eve. That’s when he felt a sudden sharp pain around his chest. Upon inspection, the startled Tiziano found a bullet on the ground where the incident happened.

After the incident Tiziano was rushed to Hospital del Nino Jesus, where he was examined. Doctors confirmed that the young boy had been grazed by the bullet, and suffered only superficial wounds.

Upon further inspection, Tiziano's aunt found the boy's crucifix necklace. And she noticed a deformed hole where there had not been one before. The family claims the cross necklace, which was given to Tiziano as a gift from his father, miraculously deflected the stray bullet, leaving the young boy with only minor injuries.
