News of the wierd! Blue Marlin Impales Woman's Breast Implant
Neat video clip story about a women who suffered a penetrating chest wound while sport fishing for marlin. Her treating physician speculates that her indwelling silicone implants (which were ruptured from the marlin bill) may have saved her life by blunting the force as she was stabbed. Apparently, serious penetrating injuries are not that rare from marlins as I found several recent reports (see here)
Another life saved by breast implants! :) As someone joked in re. to these stories last year about an Israeli woman saved from shrapnel and a car crash survival attributed to implants "Go big or die."
