Taipei (Taiwan News)–A woman who many years ago received blood transfusion during
an emergency treatment was shocked to find out that the stranger whose blood saved her life is now her boyfriend.
Hsinchu City citizen Lin Hsiao-fen worked in Taipei for many years, and nine years ago she fell ill and was treated at a hospital emergency room, according to media reports. However, she suddenly fell into a coma, the reports said. After waking up, she learned that as she had lost a large amount of blood and suffered from blood coagulation malfunction during the treatment, she had received a transfusion of more than 10 units of blood as well as two additional units of single-donor platelet to stay alive, according to the reports.
“If not for those blood units, I would have been gone,” Lin was quoted as saying. [FULL STORY]
