A New Haven, Connecticut man is crediting a lunchbox with saving his life.

Carlos Juarez is recovering after being shot during a robbery.

The shooting could have been worse had is not been for Juarez's lunchbox.

Juarez was taking out the trash Tuesday morning when two robbers stopped and demanded money.

He refused and the robbers opened fire.

Juarez said he automatically shielded himself with the lunchbox.
