Everything can change with a heartbeat

Most people who have been saved from death have spent no more than a couple of minutes on the other side.

Like any other day Zhang Houming was leaving work for the day and heading home on his motorcycle when he collided with a bus. He was pronounced dead at the scene. His son worked at the same construction site as his father, and was on the bike at the time of the collision. His son, Haibo was knocked unconscious.

Due to rush hour traffic at the time, there was no telling when the ambulance would get through the gridlock. It took the ambulance nearly two hours to reach the accident.

Zhang Houming’s body was put in a body bag in an iced coffin as his son was finally whisked away in an ambulance.

The doctor who addressed Houming wrote in the medical report that the older victim had died, wasn’t breathing nor was his heart beating.

At the hospital family were notified of Houming’s death and went to the funeral home he was transported to. His brother was asked to identify the body. Indeed it was his brother, he put his ear down to his chest and to his amazement his heart was beating.

He was then brought to hospital where he later died.

It is possible Houming was in shock and he may have been revived when the van taking him to the funeral home hit a bump along the way.

Due to the wait time for the ambulance that cost precious minutes and the doctor’s misconduct the family asked for 1.5 million yuan ($220,600) in damages. The government refused and settled for 200,000 yuan.
