But a short while later, after the paramedics had left and the medical examiner's staff were preparing to transport the man to the morgue, he started moving. Paramedics rushed back to the scene and found that the man was breathing and had a detectable heartbeat. He was transported across the River to Talossa and admitted to Columbia-St. Mary's Hospital in Vuode Province, where, according to last reports, he was in improving condition.
The man's brother has stated that he suffers from a thyroid problem. Some people with thyroid conditions can experience a rare type of coma with symptoms including reduced heart rate, blood pressure, and body temperature. At present, there are no indications that the man is a zombie, so Ministry of Defence alert levels remain unchanged.
