Strange Things Can Lead to Love… in the ER

We’ve all heard those urban legends of things happening in the ER or happening to cause a visit to the ER. The guy that decides to experiment with a new toy and it gets stuck. The guy that is in the ER for a dislocated shoulder or leg that ends up under the doctor when the doctor attempts to snap the bone back into place. The frat guy that gets hurt during the afterhours party.

The situations are endless.
