La-Z-Boy saves man

Norman Kamp has a good reason to stay in his La-Z-Boy. It may have saved his life. Authorities in Northern California report Kamp's wife tried to shoot him in the head, by firing through the back of his easy chair.

But the sturdy recliner absorbed most of the bullet's impact and left Kamp virtually unscathed. Deputies in Contra Costa County report Kamp followed his wife into the kitchen, where she tried to shoot him again, but the gun didn't fire.

Kamp was treated and released from a local hospital. His wife, Jan, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder
