Everyone remembers the Monty Python sketch, but this example of a “brain dead” patient getting ready to be terminated hits a little bit closer to home:
Dunlap said one thing he does remember is hearing the doctors pronounce him dead.
“I’m glad I couldn’t get up and do what I wanted to do,” he said.
Asked if he would have wanted to get up and shake them and say he’s alive, Dunlap responded: “Probably would have been a broken window that went out.”
The sad thing is, we have practically no idea how many other times this has happened across the country — with the opposite result.
