Pothole Saves Mans Life After Ambulance Crushes It
Maybe we should not fill ALL of the potholes around Buffalo. We know how bad some of them can get, but one actually saved one man's life.
He was on his way to the hospital and after the ambulance hit a pothole, it brought him back to normal.
A man was having a racing heart at 200 beats per minute and was rushed to the hospital, but it was a 20 minute drive. After the ambulance hit the pothole, his heart went back into rythm.
It's rare, but it's a well-described phenomenon," Nebraska Medicine's Dr. Andrew Goldsweig said. One way to treat that is with an electrical shock. Classically, you'll see it on television. The paddles, 'Clear' and a big jolt. Turns out, you can do that with a pothole," Goldsweig said, according to FOX.
