Officials are investigating why paramedics mistakenly pronounced a 70-year-old Maryland man dead, telling his family he had died before a medical examiner found he was actually alive.
George Waters ultimately died Saturday at Prince George's Hospital Center.
Waters' daughter Laverne Waters says she got a call Friday from police saying her father had died. Less than an hour later, she said, officials told her that her father was alive. She said she and her mother had already called family to tell them her father was dead.
An investigation is under way. Emergency medical services spokesman Mark Brady says the two responding paramedics are on "limited public contact status," which bars them from responding to emergency calls.
