Pulse Felt in Body in D.C. Morgue
A Washington, DC woman believed to be dead was placed in a body bag, brought to the morgue, and placed in a regrigerated box by a medical examiner's team before a pulse was discovered.
"This sort of thing always happens to me," explained Robert Davis, the paramedic who zipped the body bag. "She told me that she was dead. I'm too trusting. I'll believe anything a woman tells me." Once the woman was revived, Davis said he shouldn't blame himself. " 'It's not you, it's me,' she told me."
[I should point out at this time that it is not the opinion of WFOoBH that women lie all the time. Quite the contrary: in our experience, women always tell the truth. Men just don't want to listen."]
