Saved By The Bra

Coloradans sure are getting inventive with their undergarments this summer. First, we had the Thong Bandits who wore women's thongs over their faces in an attempt to conceal their identity during a robbery in Arvada. Then there was the priest caught jogging naked in Greeley who seemed to spur a copy-cat jogger who wore only a thong in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Until now, however, women have stayed out of the creative undergarment capers. Jessica Bruinsma, 24, of Colorado Springs has changed all of that. Last Thursday, June 19, Bruinsma was rescued after a fall in the Bavarian Alps thanks to quick thinking and a very helpful white sports bra.
