Man Yawns So Hard His Lung Collapses

Filed under: HealthInjurySickCrazzzzy

A man yawned so hard that one of his lungs actually collapsed!

A 26-year-old chinese man woke up before work like he always does, stretched and yawned.

Pretty normal. Except for the throbbing pain in his chest that followed.

He went into work anyway and didn't realize there was an issue until he was lying on a table at the end of the day, having trouble breathing. Thankfully, his coworkers brought him to the Central Hospital of Wuhan.

Doctors examined him and determined he suffered

11-Year Old Girl Back Home After Two Double Lung Transplants!

sarah murnaghan is home after successful lung transplant

11-year-old Sarah Murnaghan is back home after almost six months in the hospital and two months after her controversial two double lung transplants this past June.

The little girl has been fighting severe cystic fibrosis, and was on a waiting list to receive pediatric lungs which are a long shot to ever be available. Her mother Janet Murnaghan went to the media and eventually whipped enough people into a frenzy until a judge allowed Sarah to receive a lung transplant from the adult waiting list.

And although some believe it's unfair Sarah was able to become an exception to the rule that children have to be at least twelve years old to receive an adult lung, Sarah's mother isn't worried about that.

Bryant Gumbel ‘Doing Fine’ One Year After Health Crisis

The world was shocked last December when Bryant Gumbel revealed he had undergone surgery to remove a malignant tumor and part of his lung.

Fortunately, this December he's doing much better.

Said Gumbel:

"I'm still doing well. Doctors tell me I'm free and clear, so I hope for better times."

Gumbel walked the red carpet at UNICEF Snowflake Ball on Tuesday, looking thin but better.

"I've got very little to complain about," he said. "I'm doing well."

We’re so happy he’s doing better! Stay strong, Bryant!!
