I've heard of the Florence Nightingale effect (like from the movie Back to the Future) and I'm wondering if what I've heard is true. Can girls develop feelings toward a guy by seeing him injured or in a hospital or something?

I don't think this is true but funny story...
There was a guy that was interested in me a while back and I wouldn't give him the time of day (he wasn't worth my time, I wasn't just being a jerk). One day out of nowhere he texts me telling me he had just been in a car accident and was at the hospital. Since I didn't believe him at first, he sent me a picture of himself lying in the hospital in a neck brace with a bloody face. I felt terrible! So I bought him 2 doughnuts to bring to the hospital (never could get inside longer story) but anyways point of the story is, I didn't develop any feelings for him but I sure felt really bad and cared a lot so I guess a girl can be affected by seeing an injured guy in the hospital!0
