Parents of accident victim must pay court costs (access required)

The parents of a Franklin County man who was mistakenly declared dead will have to pay court costs to the medical examiner who placed his still-living body in a morgue drawer, the North Carolina Court of Appeals has ruled. Larry Donnell Green was struck by a car while walking down a road in January 2005. Paramedic Wade Kearny was the first to arrive and after checking Green’s vital signs concluded he was dead. Several more paramedics showed up, but none double-checked Green’s vitals, saying Kearney’s efforts had been sufficient.
