Good News Friday

I'm adopting the Winds of Change "Good News Friday" theme (at least temporarily) so that I can have an excuse to post this news item I read in The Week magazine (1 April 2006 edition).
A medical professor who suffered a major heart attack while driving was saved by his car crashing into a tree. When Ronald Mann lost consciousness, the car careered off the road and hit a tree. Since his ten-year-old Honda didn't have an airbag, his chest slammed into the steering wheel, jolting his heart back into action.
Talk about good fortune! Here is an on-line link to the story at New Scientist.
