Bubble wrap is of course great for wrapping up fragile materials or to just pop the bubbles. As one construction worker recently found out bubble wrap has even more uses, including saving lives.

A 38 year-old construction worker in Boston, Massachusetts who fell 30 feet owes his life to the air filled packaging material. Apparently not wearing a safety harness the worker fell into, and became entangled, in a pile of discarded bubble wrap.

Emergency workers showed up to find the guy alive and without serious injuries, although wrapped in the bubble wrap. Next time you have the uncontrollable urge to pop bubble wrap remember it's a life saver.

If your really love to pop bubble wrap check out the Bubble Wrap Bikini. Which is pretty much useless, unless you're a stripper or for some bedroom fun.
