Twenty-year-old college student Melissa Dohme was stabbed more than 30 times and left for dead by her insanely jealous ex-boyfriend.
Melissa was desperately close to death, and the emergency services team that rushed to the scene, after a 911 call from a passerby, had to work frantically to keep her alive long enough to get her to the hospital.
According to the trauma surgeons who performed emergency surgery on her at the hospital, Melissa died several times on the table and had to be resuscitated time and again.
Miraculously, Melissa pulled through — and married one of the firefighters who helped save her.
And, oh yes, the jealous ex-boyfriend who tried to kill Melissa got what was coming to him — in spades.
