“In Musangwe it is believed that stimulating the male sexual organs after a knockout increases their chances of surviving.”
This bit of folksy medical wisdom comes from the video description of “MUSANGWE KNOCKOUT- MOST DARING CPR!“, which just came to our attention this morning even though it’s been floating around for few days.
