You know how they say, “cats have nine lives”? Well that’s bullshit, but this guy is on his tenth life and this isn’t some Warner Bros. bullshit. Jamie Poole suffers from a condition known as Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. The condition makes him extremely susceptible to having heart attacks—the first of which he had at just 20-year-old. Since then, he has gone into cardiac arrest 9 times, having to be revived each time. Because of his condition, doctors put an instrument called a implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) into his chest, that automatically shocks his heart back into action when he goes into cardiac arrest.
As you can imagine, when people find out Jamie has died more than your average Loony Tunes character, they begin to swirl with question. So, he did what everyone does in this situation, he had an AMA over on Reddit. Some of his answers are fascinating.
