Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 120
CI patient #120 is John Bull. John was in the hospital undergoing medical procedures, which he unfortunately was not able to recover from. He was 84 years old when he died on January 19th, 2014.
The patient had contracted with Suspended Animation Inc. (SA) to provide standby, stabilization and transportation. SA personal was on standby at the hospital when the patient died and they were able to quickly apply their procedures for cooling and stabilization. The patient was then transported to a local funeral home so that the necessary transit permits could be obtained and flight arrangements could be made for transport. The first available direct flight to Detroit Metro Airport was scheduled to leave early the following morning and the patient was transported on that flight.
The 110th patient of the Cryonics Institute (CI) is an 82-year-old woman whose primary occupation was chef, including at a restaurant that she started herself. She and her husband divorced after having a daughter, but the couple re-united and lived together for 20 years without remarrying. The ex-husband and daughter tended to the patient during her terminal illness — and assisted with cryopreservation. The ex-husband encouraged the patient to make cryonics arrangements with CI, and the patient agreed.
