In a movie I watched recently the hero grabs an enemy and uses him/her as a shield protecting himself from the bullets of other enemies. When those other enemies shoot at the hero they hit the "shield" enemy killing him/her and leaving the hero unharmed. Would this work in real life?
The guns used in the movie were probably M16 rifles. The distance was about 12 feet. The bullet seemed to hit the shield in the upper torso.
