See if you think this is paradoxical.

A father and his only son were driving on a highway when they met with a horrific accident! Sadly, the father's only son was killed there and then while his father was rushed to the nearest hospital where he needed an emergency operation to save his life. A surgeon walked into the room, looked at the father and said, " I can't operate on him! He's my father!"

Is this paradoxical? Why or why not?
