In a matter of hours Sam Schmid would be dead.

The Arizona college student was in an accident in October and doctors had been itchin’ to harvest his organ for a while. Finally, his parents agreed. Sam did not.

Hours before they were to harvest his organs Sam woke up.

Sam Schmid, an Arizona college student who was thought to be brain dead, recovered from injuries sustained in an automobile accident in October just hours before he was slated to be killed and his organs given to other patients.

If only he had the common decency to stay dead. Sheesh.

Brain dead just ain’t what it used to be.
