    Alcor Life Extension Foundation performed the cryopreservation of a
Nevada man, (identified here as A-1321), on October 25, 2004. This case was
particularly difficult because A-1321 was unattended when he experienced
cardiac arrest and was not discovered for several days. Fortunately, A-1321
was wearing his Alcor bracelet and we were promptly notified upon his

    Because this patient had an extensive family medical history on file
with Alcor, we were able to convince the county coroner to limit the autopsy
to non-invasive procedures. The patient was packed in ice by a local
mortuary and shipped to Alcor where he was cryopreserved. This brings the
total number of patients to 66.

     A more detailed Case Report will be published in an upcoming issue of
Cryonics Magazine and subsequently posted on the Alcor website.
