I bet ol’ Gonzalo sleeps lightly from now on

A man in Spain who was declared dead by three doctors was actually still alive, which doctors discovered only when he began snoring on the autopsy table, according to news reports.

The man, 29-year-old Gonzalo Montoya Jiménez, was a prisoner at a jail in northern Spain. He was found unconscious in his cell on Sunday and was believed to be dead, according to the Spanish news outlet La Voz de Asturias. Three forensic doctors allegedly examined Jiménez and certified his death.

    That would be three doctors who should have their licenses revoked.

    Clearly, the medical course of study in Spain is less rigorous than in some other countries, what with much of the time devoted to such ancillary skills as veterinary studies and game butchering.
    Or they all skipped the day they covered things like “pulse” and “cardiac activity”.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
