How to recover edits when multiple users editing a story at the same time

In Jira, If two users edit story at same time, the first to save will lose edits when second saves.  Is there a way to recover the first edits or is there a way to work consecutively on a story and save both edits?

I guess Jira works consecutively, Jira saves the second save in your case. You can see changes in the History tab of the Activity section in an issue.

Alexey is correct. 

It's not losing anything.  User 1 commits a change, then later, user 2 commits one.  There's nothing lost.  User 1's changes are in the history.

Thank you for the explanation.
