Original Offspring Drummer Saves a Life at His Malpractice Trial
James Lilja, the original drummer in the Offspring, ditched the band 30 years ago to become a doctor. During jury selection for his malpractice trial he saved a prospective juror's life after the man fell, hit his head, and knocked himself out. So Lilja performed CPR and used a defibrillator, luckily on hand in the courtroom, and saved his life as he got the man's pulse back before paramedics arrived.
Lilja so got over his rock star life three decades ago to become an OB/GYN. He specializes in obstetrics, gynecology and CPR!
Unfortunately, the attorneys weren't impressed, Dr. Lilja is being sued for malpractice, the lawyers for the opposing side requested a mistrial, and a judge agreed.
