The 41-year-old tourist from North Rhine-Westphalia was on a bike ride with her husband when the incident happened.

The pair were crossing a field near the town of Gadebusch when they unknowingly entered the path of a boar hunt.

Suddenly, the woman felt a pain in her chest.

Looking down, she saw that she had been hit by a rebounded shot – but the underwire of her bra had deflected the blow.

The woman came away with just a bruise.
