New York City to prep potential organ donors before getting consent
USA Today, May 8, 2008
New York City officials plan to dispatch the nation's first ambulance equipped to preserve bodies of the newly dead so that families have time to consider organ donation. The crews would perform procedures on a corpse without consent in order to preserve the organs until the family had time to give consent for organ donation. No organs would be taken without consent, however.
