What's you're most heroic act ?

#1
So come on then everyone; What's you're most heroic act ?

Mine is saving my younger sisters life when I was 11.

We, and another group of freinds where messing about in an old church yard one Saturday while my Dad was working on his market stall in Abergele Wales. My sister had decided to step up onto a railing to look over and her foot slipped which led to the railing spike peircing her through the neck. After hearing her screams, I ran over and had to push the oldest lad who was with us out of the way because he was puking everywhere rather than trying to help, and proceeded to lift her off the spike.
As you can probably imagine, there was a lot of blood pouring from my sisters neck, so I placed my hand over it tightly and literally carried her while running for a good 5 mins back to my Dad who then rushed us to the hospital.
I remember the Doctor telling my dad the spike was only an eighth of an inch from the artory in her neck.

With you on that one lamri, go down the local legion and see how many of the old timers are spinning dits of being heroic! those that have keep it in and share it with few close friends, those that haven't spin their dits on here.

Well (I'm waiting for a few laughs here or some comment) - Lived with Ex and found out the scum had slept with a 'friend of a friend'. Argument ensued and I told him it was over, I didn't want the house and was leaving for good. Having had a few drinks that Saturday night and not really getting his head round it, he got a little annoyed, frustrated and didn't land a punch on me so instead punched the plate glass door. He severed his main artery and well, the blood gushed, splatted all over the livingroom...

I made up a tourniquet but not being a driver, dashed to a neighbour next door and I kept him going until we got to hospital 5 mins later. I knew the ambulance would take a darn sight longer. He had lost 4 pints of blood and next day they operated becasue of the drink that night

What is amusing is - did I do the right thing helping him out??? Also - in the rush to get to A&E, I forgot to lock the door so when I got back at 4am to a house with blood everywhere, bloody footprints running through the house on the wooden flooring. I just sat and laughed and thought 'christ, if only someone had tried to rob us and walked into this house, they would have thought 'f*ck this! I'm off, there's been a murder!!!!'.

Sounds like a good job pinta. Most satisfying job for me is doing a succesful lysis, done 6 now and all alive. Good news.

There you go Nutty :lol: Good skills honey!! Got to say honestly, that despite the desperate things I have seen in my career, it's always going to have to be the positive outcomes that I have to remember!! Otherwise would wind up in a psych ward with MgsSmiley :p
