    DescriptionThe human body needs a continuous flow of blood through it to keep us alive.

    If we get an injury, like a cut, blood clots help that injury to heal. They act kind of like a plug to stop blood leaking out.

    The body usually breaks down the clot once that injury has healed. But sometimes that doesn’t happen, and those blood clots can form inside arteries or veins.

    Kind of like what happened with the ship that got stuck in the Suez Canal.
