Nom de Dieu! C'est un miracle!

Hey, Chinabloggers-- what's up with the shitty medical care over there on the mainland!?

My brother David sent me the following link:

Insistent Dad sees "dead" son live.

Apparently, one Chinese hospital declared the nearly-drowned boy dead; the father insisted on taking him to another hospital... where he was deemed to be alive. (Too bad-- they could have sold him as dog meat.)

The whole thing would have been so much simpler if only the Chinese had had access to 1980s-era British medical technology-- namely, The Machine That Goes BING, which can confirm that a given patient is currently alive.
