A riddle for you

Here's an easy riddle. Let's see who guesses it right.

A man and his son are in a car accident.

Two ambulances come and father and son are transported to separate hospitals.

When the son is wheeled into surgery the doctor looks at the patient and says "I can't operate, he's my son".

How is this possible?

Hello again,

excon

PS> Alright. I got another scientific one, kind of...

You're on a ship in the northern hemisphere sailing south. You are about to cross the equator. Your cabin has NO portholes or communication devices. It DOES have toilet, a clock, a sink, a refrigerator, a knife and fork, and a table and chair.

Using ONE or more of those items, you'll be able to tell exactly WHEN you cross the equator.

How?

Well I'm inclined to go with the which direction does water flow down a drain clockwise for north anti clockwise for south, so that would be the toilet and sink,
...................but that's a common misconception so I'm not so sure

Hello bear:

Yup... But, you got to help me out. I AM under that "misconception". I also believe that hurricanes twirl a different direction in the southern hemisphere for the same reasons... No? It has to do with the direction the earth rotates. Yes?

No idea about hurricanes, or the earths rotation effecting it so, to be honest I also thought it was true until I was shown otherwise, now I just know it depends on how the bowl and pipes are made that dictates which way the water will drain out

Don't use "bowl" or "pipe" with excon, he'll get all excited.
