Given the intensity of their job, it's safe to say that doctors have a monopoly on miraculous workplace stories. Not many jobs involve being put in a position to potentially save someone's life, and while there are some relatively untreatable injuries and diseases out there, for every rule there is an exception.
One of the absurdities of mortality is just how arbitary it can feel at times. Some people survive brutal violence, extreme accidents, and pernicious diseases, while others pass away suddenly. Since stories of senseless loss seem to flood the newscycle, it's nice to scope out the rare, sometimes inexplicable tales of survival.
Not a doctor, but I'm a firefighter so I see my fair share of trauma. About a year ago, we responded to a call that went out as an "individual who had a car fall on his face". He was hot-boxing in his garage while working underneath his car that was supported by scissor jacks. Something to note, the car didn't have any tires on the front end where he was working.
