70. He Got A Hard Nugget

Paramedic here. I ran a call on a guy that was ejected out of a late-‘80s Mustang. The guy said the car rolled two times before pitching him out of the driver’s side window.

He said he landed on his head, and the 7-inch scalp avulsion seemed to corroborate his story. The car was completely crushed and sitting on its top.

The guy wanted to refuse treatment and transport. 15 on the GCS (Glasgow Coma Scale) but he never lost consciousness. I insisted, though, that he be seen at the ER. He rode the whole way texting people. When I told him that he shouldn’t be alive, he said, “Yeah, I got a hard nugget.”
