Defibrillating a shrimpTwo British paramedics tried to cook a shrimp with the electric shocks they were administering to a dying heart-attack patient. Clive Greedy and John Jones, investigators say, were joking around as they used a defibrillator to try to restart the patient’s heart. While Greedy munched on a celery stick, Jones placed the shrimp on the man’s chest and quipped, “Let’s see if we can cook this.” They failed to cook the shrimp or save the patient, and both men were fired.
