Pothole Fixes Man’s Rapid Heartbeat

Potholes may be the bane of drivers’ existence, but for one Nebraska man, a missing chunk of asphalt wound up saving his life last week.
With his heart racing to 200 beats per minute, paramedics near Omaha rushed the 59-year-old to the hospital.
As the ambulance’s tire hit the hole, the first responders say his ol’ ticker returned to its normal rhythm.
While seeming unbelievable, Nebraska Medicine’s Dr. Andrew Goldsweig told WOWT-TV, “It’s rare, but it’s a well-described phenomenon.”
