Pothole jolts Nebraska man’s heart back into normal rhythm, paramedics say

From Becker’s:

For most drivers, potholes are an unsightly nuisance. But for a paramedic team in Nebraska, the road hazard helped treat a patient with a rapid heartbeat, reports NBC affiliate WOWT.

As paramedics were transporting a 59-year-old man to CHI Health Lakeside Hospital in Omaha, the vehicle hit a large pothole.

The bump jolted the man’s heart, which was beating at 200 beats per minute, back into a normal rhythm, paramedics said.
