These TV Shows Saved Real Lives

Don’t ever let anyone tell you watching TV is a waste of time.  Here are six times when people were able to save lives using things they learned from watching TV:

1.  A 13-year-old autistic student saved his classmate’s life by using the Heimlich maneuver he learned from “SpongeBob SquarePants”.

2.  A man saved his daughter’s life by using CPR that he learned from “The Office”.

3.  A German doctor was able to diagnose a patient with severe heart failure after watching “House”.

4.  A woman from Israel got a second opinion on her cancer diagnosis because of “Grey’s Anatomy”.

5.  A contestant on “X Factor” got diagnosed with a serious lung disease after Simon Cowell and Sharon Osbourne pointed out a weird rasp in her voice.

6.  A man was accused of murder, but his appearance in a “Curb Your Enthusiasm” episode gave him an alibi.
