It’s fascinating how “heart would go on” (reference to the Titanic song by Celine Dion is purely accidental) even when body is already toast. This is not the first time we’ve had a video of heart having been ripped out of body but still beating outside of its former owner’s chest but it still amazes me how it’s possible. Heart – being a muscle of its own – needs oxygenated blood to properly function. Yet even without any blood supply, even without impulses from brain, this ever tireless part of body which works even when we sleep, can still beat ever on. Fascinating.
Props for this video go to the new Best Gore member from Brazil, who – incidentally – bears the ever so popular last name: da Silva. She was kind enough to provide following description to let us know on what happened:
It was a motorcycle accident, the people in the video are saying that one of the involved in the accident (it was a collision between a motorcycle and a car) crossed the intersection when red light was on but nobody was able to confirm whether it was the motorcyclist who failed to stop or the car driver. The dead man was run over by the wheel of his own motorcycle which ripped out his heart out of his chest but it continued beating on the road to the horror of the presents. Notice the extreme coldness of the meticulous cameraman. Really. All this mess occurred in an interior city of the Brazilian state of Espírito Santo (saint spirit) – a relatively calm coastal state.
Video of the decapitated man whose heart still beats despite having been ripped out of his rib cage is below. Thank you @brazilian-da-silva for your contribution.
