Accidents can happen from one moment to another. This young man did something incredible that can only be explained as a miracle.
They say that words mark, leave traces. In a way, I think that has a lot to do with it. The T-shirt of a young man whose inscription said “champion” honors the heroic act he committed to save his life and that of the driver of a vehicle.
According to the KTVU site belonging to the FOX network, Jared Eliff is a young man who will be eternally grateful for his co-worker for having avoided a fatal accident. His long experience behind the wheel made him know what to do, but he also said that much of the work was done by his jersey.
An unexpected accident
It was the second day of work for Jared, who was traveling as a passenger in a van to make a bakery delivery in California, United States. The deliveries were going well and the day was calm. They were on their way to make their last installment of the morning. But Jared had no idea that in a few minutes he was going to become a hero.
At one point, the driver of the truck started coughing. Jared turned to look at him as the man behind the wheel’s cough wouldn’t stop and was getting worse. Suddenly, the man fell unconscious with his foot stuck on the gas pedal. The march was accelerating and right in front of them they had a school bus. Instinctively Jared took the wheel and began to dodge the cars, while trying to take the driver’s foot off the gas pedal. “I used to be a truck car driver, and I’ve been on the road a long time and I’ve never been in this kind of situation before,” the young man told KTVU.
An accident that did not happen to adults
While the young man drove expertly, and avoided a fatal road collision, he couldn’t help but swerve the car out of a tree and they collided in front of him, but both were unharmed. The tree slowed the impact, but it could have ended much worse.
A t-shirt that announced the brave moment
Jared wore his favorite shirt that day. On it was read the legend “Champion”, a word that honored his action for the day, miraculously saving their lives.
We are not saying that the shirt saved these men from the accident, but it is a striking fact that just that day he had that garment with that legend. Without a doubt, both Jared and his partner will never forget that day and how they saved their lives.
Cough and fainting: cough syncope
According to the news, the driver of the vehicle had started coughing before passing out and losing consciousness. Although it was not revealed what happened, the good thing is that after the accident he was in good health.
According to the iValueHealth site, fainting when coughing is called cough syncope, or cough syncope. Fainting occurs when coughing or right after a coughing fit. The presence of this type of fainting spells is explained by the fact that cough stimulates the reflexes of the autonomic nervous system, affecting the brain, heart and respiratory system, according to an article published by the site MisRemediosPara. According to this same site, fainting is related to severe and prolonged coughing episodes.
Tobacco is a determining factor in cough syncope. People who smoke regularly are more prone to this type of syncope. Eliminating tobacco progressively or permanently can alleviate the cough and consequently the subsequent fainting.
Laughing can also cause syncope
When you can’t stop laughing and the laughter becomes more and more noticeable, you can feel your eyes watering, your stomach hurts, you blush and you may even feel like you are short of breath. Uncontrollable laughter can also lead to cough syncope, due to shortness of breath and reduced blood pressure. So if you feel like you are tempted to laugh, and you can’t stop laughing, try to control it.
You know, when you have a persistent cough that does not stop with the passing of the days, or if you are caught unaware coughing spells that do not stop, do not stop seeing your doctor immediately.
