"Ambulance company Distress Alert said she had shown "no form of life", South Africa's TimesLive website reports."
"no form of life" is that not what they say about everyone they put in the fridge, could be a massive survival ship bias here, how many died in the fridge never able to tell their story?
Some ancient cultures seems to understand this. Talk nice to and treat the low
probability Big impact event nicely (the assumed dead person). One of my friends ended in a kind of coma some years back. He could hear what everyone talked about around him,
but could not say a word or even blink his eye. People talked like he not could hear them, but he could hear every word. Luckily he was breathing all the time and did not end in the fridge.
if in car accident make sure it not happen on Friday, then they will often not check the fridge before Monday, and then you are too cold to breath!
"You never expect to open a fridge and find someone in there alive," the source added. "Can you imagine if we had begun the autopsy and killed her?"
"The diagnosis of death may be extremely difficult,” said Ryan Blumenthal, senior forensic pathologist at the University of Pretoria’s Department of Forensic Medicine. “It can fool you, and it can fool you bad.”"
what kind of probability model do they use to declare people dead?
