Mike’s the Stupid News: Witness faints in court; Smelly sneaker fails to revive her
THE AGONY OF THE FEET: Court officials in Florida called upon the most advanced medical procedure at their disposal to try to revive a witness who fainted while testifying at a trial ... by having one of her relatives wave a worn sneaker under her nose!!!
Falguni Patel passed out after a prosecutor showed her the knife used by the masked robber who robbed her convenience store in 2009.
When she couldn't be woken up in traditional ways, a family member took off her athletic shoe and held it under Patel's nose, saying that Patel is prone to fainting and the family member frequently uses this technique to revive her. When it didn't this time, the judge admitted de-feet (Rimshot) and adjourned the session.
