Hitting a pothole can save your life, even if it wrecks your alignment.
A 59-year-old Nebraska man who was being transported to the hospital for a rapid heartbeat had his heart jolted back into a normal rhythm when the ambulance hit a pothole, according to published reports.
The man was at work when his heart started racing. During the 20-minute ride to the emergency room, his heart rate reached an alarming 200 beats per minute. Medics from the Omaha-area Gretna Fire and Rescue squad told hospital staff that hitting the pothole jolted the man’s heart back to a normal rhythm, according to a CNN report.
