There is a lot of information on how the doctors were able to save this mans life.

“Tonight a man with a heart and a lung was pierced from side to side with a dart with an unprecedented intervention, was saved at the Cardiac Surgery of the Molinette Hospital of the City of Health in Turin. A case of exceptional rarity. A 47-year-old man arrived in the emergency room of the hospital in Aosta after using a crossbow. In practice, the man was pierced by a dart of over 30 cm in his chest for reasons still in the course of the investigation. Even more incredibly, in addition to the thoracic wall, the blunt instrument has pierced the left ventricle – the most important of the heart chambers – with an entry and an exit point, and then embedded in the left lung without causing immediate death. The patient has always been awake. Removing the dart from its location could have defused uncontrollable bleeding. The heads of the 118 operations center in Piedmont coordinated a helicopter rescue operation at the Molinette Hospital of the City of Health in Turin, where the University Cardiac Surgery team led by Professor Mauro Rinaldi, previously alerted and activated, conducted a life-saving cardiac surgery. After the establishment of an extracorporeal emergency circulation to support cardio-respiratory functions, it was possible to extract the dart from the heart and repair cardio-pulmonary lesions. The operation was perfectly successful and the patient was already extubated and woken up a few hours later.
