Miracle Of Woman Who Had A Live Grenade Lodged In Her Face

Recommended Posts

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2042727/Karla-Flores-Miracle-Woman-LIVE-grenade-lodged-face--survived.html

Apparently, the grenade was fired with a grenade launcher - the noise that Karla heard - but it didn't explode when it hit her face. It just got embedded.

Immediately the hospital was put on alert - because the deadly explosive could go off at any moment and kill everyone within 32ft.

Barely able to breathe, Karla was isolated and the hospital's patients and staff evacuated.

But the clock was ticking and something still had to be done with Karla. Most of the doctors didn't want to operate her.

Finally, the hospital head, Dr Gaxiola Meza, asked for volunteers.

Four brave people came forward: Two anesthesiologists, Felipe Ortiz y Cristina Soto, the nurse Rodrigo Arredondo and Dr Lidia Soto.

Along with two explosive experts from the Mexican army, they took Karla to an open field to operate her.

An amazing story, so would anyone on here be brave enough to volunteer to remove a live grenade in this fashion?

It's incredible that in 2011 there are people in large swathes of the world prepared to do this (fire grenades at civilians) to others. Shows just how far we have still got to progress as a species.

If i was in that hospital and i found out about that, i would love to say that i would be first in line to help her, but like so many people i would have got out of dodge as quick as possible.

My brother in law is a bomb disposal expert for the army, and the stories he tells me of what he has seens scares me, the thing i cant work out is why he does it and why afrer seeing what he has seen why he keeps doing it

Conversely, in these swathes of the world, we have police officers who decline to wade into a pond to save a drowning child.
