Oops, Sorry About That

In UK, a retiree suffered a fatal heart attack after his medical chart was marked DO NOT RESUSCITATE by a death panel accidentally.

"Heart specialist Dr Alistair McCance said that even if staff had tried to resuscitate him immediately, the chances of saving his life would have been 'very low'."

Ahhhh, he would've died anyway. We were probably doing him a favor!
