Man on Morgue Slab Starts Breathing
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 (search) in Durham, where he was in critical condition Wednesday.

Take away those fuucks licence. Actually a couple of guys at work shocked a guy that was at least 12 hours dead, hence the lividity and rigor. Boy did they catch some **** from the rest of us.

I work in a med office and we were talking about this earlier. Two nurses and a respiratory doc we have here confirmed a old man dead. Called the family up to the hospital, and they were all in the room when after a long period of time, his heart began to beat again. This is no ****, and they had him on monitors and everything. Only the vent was still on, waiting for his personal doc to remove..... crazy sh*t
