N.C. Man Incorrectly Declared Dead

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A medical examiner studying a body in a morgue was startled when the man took a shallow breath.

Emergency medical technicians had declared 29-year-old Larry D. Green dead almost two hours earlier, after he was hit by a car.

Medical examiner J.B. Perdue was called to the accident scene Monday but did not examine Green then. Later, he was documenting Green's injuries when he noticed the man was breathing.

``I had to look twice myself just to make sure it was there, that's how subtle it was,'' Perdue said.

Green, 29, was taken to Duke University Medical Center in Durham, where he was in critical condition Tuesday.

Several members of the Franklin County emergency medical service have been suspended pending an investigation, said Darnell Batton, the county attorney.

Damn! That could cost the guy his life, depending on whether or not his brain was deprived of oxygen that whole time. All depends on how shallow his breaths were and it sounds like they were pretty bad.

Let's not even forget that scary somewhat conifned feeling of waking up in a casket. YIKES!!!!! I'm reminded of Monty Python, "I'm not dead yet. I'm feelin' much'better."

Anyone remember the movie out of the 1980's about the witch doctor(s) that would give someone some sort of poison that would make the person appear dead. They would then bury them in a casket, then dig them up later. Scary movie based loosely on the truth!

You know, it could have been MUCH worse. They could have been taking a scalpel to the guys chest to do an autopsy. How bad would that freak out the examiner. Start to slice the dude open and he jumps off the table from the cutting of the scalpel.
