1. Live Grenade
Mother-of-three Karla Flores was selling seafood on the streets when she was hit by a grenade launcher. The live grenade got embedded in her skull but did not detonate, but it could go off at any moment and kill everyone within 32 feet. None of the doctors in the local hospital were willing to operate on her, so they had an open call for volunteers. Four brave people came forward: Two anesthesiologists, Felipe Ortiz and Cristina Soto, the nurse Rodrigo Arredondo and Dr Lidia Soto. Along with two explosive experts from the Mexican army, they operated on Karla in an open field. The doctor, who wore no armor, successfully extracted the device.
