In a series of incredibly painful coincidences, a man showed doctors first hand just how 3-D printing could change the way they perform surgeries. I almost didn't believe it at first.
John Cousins, the managing director of Isodo3D, was in the middle of a presentation to the NHS when the worst happened. He was attempting to show the Royal Bournemouth Hospital surgeons attending the presentation how the 3-D technology worked when he collapsed in excruciating pain.
"It was sheer pain, I couldn't take it anymore," Cousins told IBTimes UK. "I was just demonstrating how the machine works, but I was in so much pain that 10 minutes later I was in an ambulance."
