I imagine that there are very few days worse for a person than finding out the person they had spent the vast majority of their life with has died. There is nothing quite like the pain of losing your spouse or child, and it isn't something that we would wish on our worst enemy. One man had the unfortunate experience of having to deal with getting the news his wife had passed away, even though she hadn't.
Frank Priddis's wife Sandra had been admitted to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital for treatment for bladder cancer. Everything seemed to be going fine when all of a sudden Frank was called by a nurse and told that his wife had sadly passed away. He says it was the worst hour of his entire life, until sadness morphed to relief, and then anger.
"The nurse told me that my wife had passed away approximately an hour previously," said Priddis.
He immediately got up and rushed over to the hospital to find out more about his wife's "death."
