New Jersey man falls into coma, wakes up in Poland
http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/jer...09711.html

You'd think some guys would actually be thrilled if this happened to them...

Quote:[Sixty-nine-year-old Wladyslaw Haniszewski had lived in the U.S. for about 30 years. But when the New Jersey resident fell into a coma he awoke to find himself in his native country of Poland.
The New York Daily News reports that Haniszewski fell victim to a growing phenomenon in which uninsured immigrants are deported by U.S. hospitals that do not want to get stuck paying for their treatment.

But in all serious, crazy...

Yeah that's messed up...

Regardless of where you stand on immigration or medical issues, it's definitely a sign of a broken system when this is a solution

Sounds like this may be the next evolution in travel. I wouldn't mind going to sleep to wake up in a new country without ever leaving my bed.

I hardly think this is common. I would like to see the numbers for how many illegal Mexicans are treated every year in US hospitals vs how many of them are deported. I could imagine it is an extremely small number that are deported.
