Also, his story is (hopefully) going to make a great book.

Update on the rescued hiker from the Seattle Times:  He came back from the dead  eek.gif

Quote:
"He died while he was in the ER, which gave us the unique opportunity to try and save his life by basically bypassing his heart and lungs, which is the most advanced form of artificial life support that we have in the world, [Nurse] Badulak said.

He remained dead for about 45 minutes, while teams repeatedly administered CPR and hooked him up to an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) machine, she said. In that process, blood is pumped outside of the body to a heart-lung machine that removes carbon dioxide and sends oxygen-filled blood back to tissues in the body.

Great job by SAR and Harborview miracle workers!

From the Times article you cited, it sounds like he is a pretty great guy; caring and generous. I am glad he made it.
