    A car crash victim was declared dead by two paramedics, who then left the scene, leaving him trapped in the wreckage—only for other emergency responders to find the man alive more than an hour later.

    The 30-year-old, who crashed his Porsche early Sunday in Melbourne, Australia, was being loaded into a coroner's van when it was noticed that he still had a faint pulse.

    While the victim remains in critical condition in a Melbourne hospital, ambulance chiefs pledged to hold an internal inquiry to discover how the extraordinary mistake occurred.

    In the US paramedics cannot pronounce someone dead, only a coroner or a doctor can. They certainly wouldn't be allowed to leave the scene.

    Paramedics cannot declare someone dead in the United States precisely because of things like this.

    I'm not a paramedic, but you're dead to me.

    Hmmm. I can declare people dead. ;)
