(Scroll down for video) A man in the United Kingdom, who was declared dead at age 29 following a car accident, went on to live until age 108, doctors said.
108-year-old Samuel Ledward of Gwernaffield, was in a coma following a motorcycle accident at age 29, after his front tire suddenly busted.
Paramedics who arrived at the scene declared him dead. As the body was being wheeled to the morgue, a nurse saw that Ledward was moving.
He was rushed back to his hospital room, where he went on to make a full recovery. Ledward died on Tuesday. His wife died 22 years ago.
Ledward credits his long life to the nurse who noticed that he wasn’t dead and to good food. He left behind a son, David, and a grandson, Simon, who both live in Blackpool.
