Amazing surgery

Private Channing Moss was impaled by a live RPG during a Taliban ambush while on patrol. Military protocol says that medevac choppers are never to carry anyone with a live round in him. Knowing that it could explode, the flight crew said damn the protocol and flew him to an aid station. Again, protocol said that in such a case the patient is to be put in a sandbagged area away from the surgical unit, given a shot of morphine and left to wait (and die) until others are treated. The medical team also ignored the protocol. Here’s a 7-min video put together by the Military Times; it includes actual footage of the surgery where Dr. John Oh, a Korean immigrant who became a naturalized citizen and went to West Point, removed the live round with the help of volunteers and a member of the EOD (explosive ordinance disposal) team. Moss has undergone six operations but is doing well at home in Gainesville, GA. This is a most amazing story; you’ll find the video amazing. br /a title=”http://www.militarytimes.com/multimedia/video/rpg_surgery/” href=”http://www.militarytimes.com/multimedia/video/rpg_surgery/” target=”_blank”http://www.militarytimes.com/multimedia/video/rpg_surgery//a
