"One way to treat that is with an electrical shock. Classically, you'll see it on television. The paddles, clear and a big jolt. Turns out, you can do that with a pothole," Dr. Andrew Goldsweig said.

The doctor said its a rare phenomenon, but it can happen.

The man's heart rate returned to normal after that jolt.

His family said he's expected to make a full recovery.
