Family's outrage after unconscious veteran mistakenly pronounced DEAD at VA hospital
"It all started last Thursday morning when 46-year-old Danny Dunn, an U.S. Army veteran, was discovered unconscious by his wife in their Central Kentucky home.

The former soldier was rushed to a hospital in Harrodsburg and was later airlifted to the VA Hospital in Lexington, where medical personnel pronounced him dead.

'I said, "Are ya'll sure he's gone?" and they said, "There's no pulse, ma'am, he's gone,"' Jennifer Dunn told LEX18.

In accordance with her husband's end-of-life wishes, Mrs Dunn made the decision to take him off life support, but she quickly discovered that Danny still had vital signs.

As of Monday, the 46-year-old veteran was very much alive, and according to his wife, apparently growing stronger."
