Man Pronounced Dead – Wasn’t

This kind of thing is pretty scary even though it had a happy ending. The young man was pronounced dead  four months ago.  Parents had finally given permission to harvest his organs.  They did one last test as parents were paying final respects and finally got reflex responses.  This week he was on a morning talk show telling the host that he had heard and comprehended the doctor pronouncing him dead but could not communicate otherwise. Can you even imagine??????????
