After 400 years lost, 'cursed' novel of Spain's imperial age is finally published
Twenty-two years ago, Joseph Bitetto's mother went into labor prematurely. EMTs raced to her home, administered first aid and rushed her to the hospital. "There was blood everywhere, on the ground, on the toilet... My mom was bleeding out profusely," Bitetto told CNN. "If the EMTs didn't act accordingly and fast, she was in danger and I was in danger." Both mother and child survived. Bitetto's grateful father thanked the doctors and police. But in the midst of chaos, he never got a chance to thank the medics.
