Some twins look the same.
Some twins wear the same clothes (which is a bit annoying)
But twins, having the same accident and sustaining the SAME injury but on the opposite side of their lungs … is funny!
Thirty year old twins were in a car that had no airbag system (Lada?). One was the driver, the other was the front seated passenger.
The car got hit from the front and came to a sudden stop, and they presented to an ED.
On arrival, both:
-were complaining of shortness of breath
-were complaining of chest pain to the side where the seatbelt crosses the chest.
-had asymmetric reduced breath sounds in one lung, but opposite each other.
-vital signs were normal
Their chest xrays showed the following:
(link to what a pneumothorax is)
The SAME injury on opposite sides.
They made a full, uneventful recovery, dont worry im not laughing at dead people here.
Although laughing at the misfortune of others is sometimes funny.. ;p
