Downtown Crossing (2) - S5-E15

Corrected entry: When the Mugger asks to see Joey, the Dr. explains to Joey about his condition as they walk to his hospital room. The Dr. tells her that the Mugger had undergone surgery to try to save his life, and had a 'sucking chest wound' which is obviously a substantial injury. Yet when they show the Mugger in the hospital bed, he is bare from the waist up. There are absolutely no signs of surgery or incisions anywhere that can be seen on camera, which is illogical considering all his internal bleeding and a massive chest wound.

Correction: In most cases a "sucking chest wound" is a reference to a punctured lung, sucking being the sound the doctor hears through the stethoscope. This can easily (and most commonly does) happen internally without any external injury, often a broken rib will puncture the lung and cause bleeding in the chest cavity. If a chest tube is put in to re-inflate the lung and drain blood from the cavity, it will always be inserted from the side and not readily visible when looking at someone straight on.
