Vet declared dead by VA hospital, is actually alive

LEXINGTON, KY (CNN) - A Central Kentucky family says the VA Hospital in Lexington made a major mix-up. They tell CNN affiliate WLEX that the hospital declared their loved one dead, days ago. However, that family tells us that man is still alive.

Jennifer Dunn tells LEX-TV that she woke early Thursday morning to find her husband, Danny Dunn, was unconscious. He was taken over to a hospital in Harrodsburg, then flown to the VA Hospital here in Lexington.

Dunn was then allegedly told by hospital staff that her husband was deceased. "I asked him if I could go back in there one more time before I left and when I went back in there, the man had a heart rate and blood pressure was holding good and everything," she said.

Four days later, Danny's wife says he is doing much more than breathing on his own.
