'Dead' Australian leaves hospital

An investigation is underway after paramedics wrongly assumed an accident victim had died at the scene.

30-year-old Daniel Huf had become trapped upside-down in his car outside Melbourne in April, paramedics worked on him for some time before eventually pronouncing him dead. His body was left in the wreckage for up to an hour as the police conducted an investigation of the crash, but when they went to move his remains they discovered he still had a faint pulse.

Incredibly, Daniel not only survived but went on to make a full recovery. "We know that it is a miracle that Daniel can walk, read, speak some recognisable words, write logical messages and recognise his visitors," said his father.

"A man pronounced dead following a car crash by Australian paramedics who then left the scene has been discharged from hospital after making a remarkable recovery, a report said Friday."

Don't just assume all Australian Paramedics are under-trained, this was a rare and stupid mistake

lol right? Man, is it just me or are there a lot of stories like this lately? I'm thinking a revamp of declaring mortality status is in order. On a much larger scale, how many people do you think were still alive while going through the beginning of an autopsy and embalming?? I think it happens more than one wants to admit. Remember the article a few weeks back where the Nigerian Grandma had been dead for 12 days and was resurrected? And the Asian woman who'd died and was on display, all her belongings were given away, when much to her neighbors dismay, they returned one morning, to ... [More]

Yeah, the nerve of some people. I mean you spend all that money, make funeral arrangements, divide their stuff and then afterwards, they got the gall to come back without notifying anybody about it beforehand. Now come on, if your just gonna take a little short trip to Disneyland like that and come back later, let somebody know for godsakes! Just sayin' that's all. Seriously though, that's some spooky stuff, especially somebody coming back after 12 days. *shivers*

#4's comment is absolutely untrue, they have no idea what they are on about. I would rather be assisted by any Australian paramedic then some weekend warrior volunteer who thinks they know everything there is to now about pre-hospital care. Seriously are you that arrogant to think that you a volunteer/part time firefighter would know more than a university degree full time paramedic. I wouldn't let you near me with a bandaid.

I don't see where I commented that I had more knowledge than a trained ambulance attendant. I simply stated that we train with the attendants, so that when the time comes we know where equipment is on the ambulance so we can assist them. I have the highest respect for ambulance attendants and the jobs that they perform, and yes this was a case that is very rare to happen.

I have to say that I owe my life to a emergency response paramedic. Believe it or not I "accidentally" swallowed a powerful 100μg/hr Duragesic transdermal patch! One moment I was having Sunday dinner with my wife and kids when I passed out. On the way to the stone floor my face landed in my dinner and my head struck the table hard.(so I was informed afterwards)I then struck my head hard again on the stone floor. I had gone into complete respiratory failure,the paramedic became my lungs for over one and a half hours as I was to critical to move. I was unconscious for 56 hours... [More]
