Man Mistakenly Deemed Dead Leaves Hospital (http://dailynews.att.net/cgi-bin/news?e=pri&dt=050315&cat=strange&st=stranged88qs4m 81&src=ap)

A man who was hit by a car and mistakenly declared dead is out of the hospital and continuing his recovery in a rehabilitation center, relatives said.

Larry Green was hit by a car the night of Jan. 24 as he walked home after buying beer.

Green, 29, was examined on the scene by paramedics and a medical examiner, declared dead and his body taken to a morgue. There, 2 1/2 hours after the accident, the same medical examiner detected signs of life. He was hospitalized.

Family members said Green was released from Duke Hospital late last week and was in a care facility in Wilson. Family friend Abdul Ahmed said his progress has been slow but promising.


Two of the four paramedics who treated Green were fired and their credentials suspended, though the credential of one has been reinstated pending an administrative hearing. The other two were ordered to take remedial training. The medical examiner was not disciplined.

Dead man walking


Green suffered a severe head injury, broken leg and is paralyzed.

"When you call his name he can understand you want to talk to him, and when he looks at you he knows who you are," Ahmed said.
"Dead man conscious", maybe . . .

Or from the Discworld: "I aten't dead!".

All joking aside, you can't help wondering if his condition would have been better had they given appropriate treatment at the roadside.

I don't think it was the same story. Apparently, this happens more often than it should. :o

I know I shouldn't be joking about it, but this reminds of a film:

(A man is on the phone, listening)
- Yes, I understand. Let me know if there is a change in his conditions.
(Speaking to the other men in the room)
- He is dead.

We need more stories like the one at the start of this thread.

Here is to putting funeral homes out of business.

This reminds me of a Simpsons episode


Mr. Burns was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. He was later moved to a better hospital, where his condition was upgraded to 'alive'.

"A little patience Mr Burns. We've found a solution for 19 of your knife wounds already. We'll unfreeze you when medical technology solves the other 27!"
