Larry Green The reaction to this story? HOLY FUCKING SHIT.
Larry Green stepped out of the darkness so suddenly that the car that hit him didn't even leave skid marks. The impact sent his shoes, socks and the unopened beer in his hand flying. Green came to rest on U.S. 401 alongside a trash-strewn ditch, where he was examined by paramedics and declared dead. Over the next 2 1/2 hours, the bloody body with a gaping head wound was zipped into a black vinyl bag, taken to the morgue and slid into a stainless-steel refrigerated drawer. There was just one problem: Green was alive. Two weeks after that shocking discovery, the 29-year-old Green clings to life in a hospital intensive care unit, paralyzed.This scary ass story reminds me of this book (Buried Alive: The Terrifying History of Our Most Primal Fear) I read a couple summers ago when I worked at Rockefeller Library.
