Watching TV is much more than a source of entertainment. Some popular programs have actually saved lives. The next time someone mentions how watching television rots your brain, direct them to this list of 10 shows that came in handy in dire life-or-death situations.
1. ‘The Walking Dead’
This show has no shortage of zombies, death, and gory scenes. But believe it or not, it actually helped a man named Kevin Sutton while he stood outside of a Best Buy store. He overheard an altercation, so he approached to see what was going on. That’s when he saw a man had been shot in the stomach. Using a technique he saw on The Walking Dead, Sutton administered a first aid technique, cleaned the gunshot wound, and applied pressure to the wound to stop the bleeding until the paramedics arrived.
