Watch | Michigan-based Cryonics Institute claims youngest ‘patient’
A 14-year-old Londoner is one of the youngest additions to Michigan-based Cryonics Institute’s list of ‘patients’.The girl, who died of a rare form of cancer, had asked to be cryogenically preserved in hopes of being brought to life. For the uninitiated, Cryonics is the practice of deep-freezing corpses of those who have died of an incurable disease until a future medical technology restores them to full health. The Cryonics Institute is one of the three full- service cryonics facility in the world.The membership & the freezing process costs around $30,000. But the process raises some serious legal & ethical issues.
