Lucky

By lex, on December 15th, 2007

So, you’re a 14-year old kid from Illinois on vacation on a Mexico-bound cruise liner in December. Lucky, yah?

Until your appendix bursts at sea, and then, you know: Not so much.

Except that there’s a US Navy aircraft carrier not so very far away, and it’s got a modern medical center tucked away inside. They send a helicopter to get you, and after you’re met on the flight deck by the ship’s senior medical officer you’re brought below in a weapons elevator, down to medical. Where the medical staff successfully conducts an emergency appendectomy.
