Dr. Patricia Quinlan
It’s been decades since “MacGyver” was on TV, but we’re glad to see people like this keeping its spirit alive . . . in the best way possible.
Dr. Patricia Quinlan of Center Valley, Pennsylvania was on a United flight from Philadelphia to San Francisco on Thanksgiving, when a 59-year-old man sitting in front of her fell out of his seat. When he didn’t get up, she realized something was wrong.
She used the plane’s defibrillator to figure out his heart didn’t have a blockage . . . but found his pulse was off, his blood pressure was dangerously low, and he was seriously dehydrated. So she had to use what was available to save his life.
She used her HAIR TIE as a tourniquet on his arm . . . used some little airplane bottles of whiskey to disinfect a needle . . . hooked him up to the plane’s IV bag . . . and had passengers shine the flashlights from their phones to give her enough light to work.
The guy finally came to after about 20 minutes, and he was able to walk off the plane when it landed in San Francisco.
Medical malpractice doesn’t get crazier than this.
36-year-old Hanan Mahmoud Abdul Karim gave birth last month in Amman, Jordan. It was a C-section.
And while her gynecologist was performing the procedure . . . he somehow left his CELL PHONE inside her.
He sewed her up, and she and the baby were discharged. She only realized something was wrong when someone called the doctor, and she felt the phone VIBRATING inside her.
She went back to the hospital, and other, better surgeons successfully removed it. She was in a lot of pain before they took it out, but fortunately she’s okay.
And now the government is investigating.
Lady Gaga likes to shock but even some controversies are too big for her. According to the “New York Post,” Gaga chose not to release a video for her R. Kelly duet “Do What You Want” because there was too much negative publicity surrounding the clip’s director and co-star.
Gaga shot the video with R. Kelly and director/photographer Terry Richardson back in September with a planned release for December, but wound up scrapping it. In January she posted an angry rant on her website where she blamed time constraints and “those who have betrayed me.”
But the “The Post “reports that just around the time she pulled the video, several models accused Richardson of sexual misconduct (which he denied) and then a “Village Voice” article recounted details of several sexual assault suits brought against Kelly in the 1990s by “dozens of girls,” all of whom had “harrowing lawsuits.” Apparently all the controversy was just too much for the pop star to handle. “Gaga had a video directed by an alleged sexual predator, starring another sexual predator. With the theme, ‘I’m going to do whatever I want with your body?,’” said a source. “It was literally an ad for rape.”
But nothing stays hidden for long. Just hours after “The Post” article ran, TMZ posted a 30-second snippet of the sexually explicit “Do What You Want” video. The clip has R. Kelly as a doctor “treating” Gaga, while other clips have a naked Gaga writhing around the floor wrapped only in newspaper. In another clip Richardson inserts himself in the video as a photographer taking pictures of Gaga. Judging by the 30 seconds, she made the right choice pulling the whole thing.
