An elderly man was on public transport and suddenly had a heart attack.
Fortunately, the man sitting next to the elderly man was a doctor. The doctor pushed down on the elderly man's ribs to get the heart beating again. It started again, and he was saved.

That week, the elderly man sued the doctor £34 thousand for breaking his ribs while pushing down on his chest.

I think that if someone saved my life, I would not then take 34 thousand pounds off them. It's madness.

It might have been in the US, it didn't really say. It's completely insane.

It's easy money for him. Sure, it's a dog act, but easy money nonetheless.
