A woman in the northern Bulgarian town of Ruse survived a car crash thanks to her silicon breasts which acted as an airbag, Standart newspaper reported Monday.

The 24-year-old ran through a red light and crashed her car into another vehicle at a busy crossroad in the middle of town Saturday, the daily said.

"The two cars were crumpled past recognition in the crash but the woman's silicon breasts acted as airbags and saved her life," Standart wrote, citing eyewitness reports.

But survival as well as beauty comes at a price as the woman burst her silicon implants in the crash.
