Can a needle save the life of a stroke victim? Not this kind

A strange, weird and funny myth came up on my Google alert about stroke news.

From the urban legend department from Can a Needle Save the Life of a Stroke Victim?

Surprise answer (at least as the needle is described in the story): No.

A doctor used a needle to use tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) that helped save my life. Different needle, different location.
