it depends where it is located, if you strike the heart just right it will never work again, depending on the depth you can live through it (there was an article in the paper about a guy living through a stingray hit right through his chest right through his heart and he lived, barely but he lived) its very difficult to determine wheather you will live or not but it is possible
