Escaped Death Twice

Lewis Roberts narrowly escaped death—twice.  The first time when the teenager was hit by a van.  The second was more dramatic.  Just four days after his accident, doctors told Lewis’ family there was “zero chance” of him recovering.  They officially certified him as dead and reported his “death” to the coroner and the family agreed to donate his organs.  Just hours before the scheduled surgery, Lewis’ sister begged him to breathe on his own.  She said, “one, two, three, breathe, Lewis” and he did!  Evidence shows many doctors use the diagnosis of brain death as a way to access organs.  Medical experts say it’s totally subjective or opinion based.  Get more details on brain death and organ donation at, then click on the microphone icon.
