A 37-year-old English man saved his own life after he was stabbed in the neck by using a doner kebab to stop the bleeding from the wound. MacGyver would be jealous.
The man, James Hobbs, used the kebab as a compression device after 36-year-old Jamie Edney stabbed him during an argument. Hobbs lost 6 1/2 pints of blood before he got to the hospital. Apparently, the altercation began when Hobbs accused Edney of having an affair with his girlfriend - according to the Huffington Post, it was Hobbs who threw the first punch, causing Edney to grab the knife.
Though Edney was arrested and charged, the judge showed leniency considering he wasn't the one to actually start the fight.
