A father took a gun into hospital to stop doctors taking his son off life support – and during the three-hour stand-off the young man squeezed his hand.
The sign that he wasn’t brain dead meant he was kept alive – and he is now recovering and doing well.
His father, 59-year-old George Pickering II, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after marching into Tomball Regional Medical Center in Texas with a gun.
His 27-year-old son, George III, had been declared brain dead after suffering a massive stroke in January.
After doctors declared there was no more hope for him, they ordered a ‘terminal wean’ – whereby life support is slowly withdrawn to end a life.
Pickering’s ex-wife and other son had agreed to the move, and the young man had already been placed on an organ donation register.
