Doc Tales

Upon seeing the following headline, "Waddell falls down 100-foot mine shaft, kills 3 rattlesnakes, survives 2 days before rescue," I immediately contacted Dr. John Waddell to express my relief that he had survived such a horrible ordeal. John, however, assured me that he was not the John Waddell mentioned in the article noting that even near starvation, dehydrated and with multiple broken bones, once he saw the 3 rattlesnakes, he would have had no trouble scaling a 100 foot mine shaft!
