Patient fixes hospital machine
A Bosnian hospital patient spent seven hours repairing hospital machinery so his operation could go ahead.
Doctors had told car mechanic Slobodan Mocevic, 56, his operation to remove a kidney stone was cancelled because of faulty equipment.
Mocevic asked to borrow a set of tools and then stripped down and repaired the Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy machine at the hospital in Kasindol.
He said: “I was in agony, and there was no way I could have waited any longer.”
The device removes kidney stones by sending a sonic wave through a patient’s body to break up the stone.
