She Without Arm, He Without Leg ballet. It's really beautiful. If you haven't had a chance to see it, I really recommend it.


And another amazing story:

On March 5, 2000, Inés Ramírez performed a caesarean section on herself and survived, as did her son, Orlando Ruiz Ramírez. She is believed to be the only woman to have performed a successful caesarean section on herself.

Self surgery is possible (depending on what you are trying to do), and there are people who have done it and been just fine afterwards.

But I've never heard of anything like this. The fact that this woman had no medical training, and was completely alone at the time makes this incredible. It was still a very foolish thing to do though.

Agreed, but it's possible she would have died without the assistance, given her history. It's crazy she survived it.
