Mid-Air Surgery

Mid-Air Surgery

In 1995, two doctors saved a woman’s life on an airplane by performing mid-air surgery on her internal injuries sustained from a previous accident with a coat hanger and silverware. They also used cognac to sterilize the equipment. It was on a flight from Hong Kong to London. They couldn’t land for help, as the increase in air pressure could have killed her.
