Paralysed man overhears doctors talk about removing his organs

A 43-year-old paralysed Swedish man has filed an official complaint to a hospital after he heard doctors telling his girlfriend he would die and discussing transplanting his organs.

Jim Fritze was conscious but unable to tell medics he could hear them.

"I heard them tell my girlfriend and my relatives that there was no hope. I couldn't do anything. I could only see and hear. I couldn't move my body," he told The Telegraph.

Fritze heard doctors talk of transplanting his liver and kidney. Family members even came to say a final farewell to him.



He suffered a stroke while out dining with his girlfriend on a small island near the southern Swedish city of Gothenburg.

As it took more than 90 minutes to transport him to hospital, he was completely paralysed by the time he arrived.

After two years, Fritze can now speak and move though is confined to a wheelchair.

Gothenburg's Sahlgrenska Hospital said it would deal with the complaint "very seriously."
