Jimi Fritze told a UK newspaper that the doctors looked at an x-ray of his brain, and told his girlfriend that it he wouldn't live, News.com.au reported.

43-year-old Fritze said that he heard the doctors discussing the possibility of organ donation, in particular his liver and kidney.

Before Fritze could be declared brain dead, a senior doctor re-examined the x-ray and realised that there was a good chance he would recover.

Soon enough, Fritze could nod his head, speak and move again, to a small degree, following extensive rehab.
