This is why pacemakers say "Do not remove" on them.

Yeesh.

Man turns in pacemaker cut from mom's chest
Texan wanted to keep device as evidence in long-running dispute
Updated: 8:33 p.m. ET March 16, 2005HOUSTON - A man in Texas has returned to authorities the pacemaker he carved from his dead motherís chest, causing an evidence tampering charge against him to be dropped, prosecutors said Wednesday.

ďNo one wants to prosecute someone whose mother just died,Ē Harris County Assistant District Attorney Leslie LeGrand III said.

James Allan Donalson, 59, acknowledged removing his motherís pacemaker after she died in January, saying he wanted to keep it as part of a long-running dispute with a medical supplier.

Prosecutors told Donalson the charge would be dropped if he returned the pacemaker so the medical examinerís office could study it. He resisted, but LeGrand said Donalsonís brothers eventually convinced him to relent about two weeks ago.

That is indeed a problem. And it's not like anyone ever saves the box.

Wonder how long she had it. If less than 90 days, maybe he can return it for a full refund...

Are pacemakers internal or external devices?

Generally they are INTERNAL devices...in this case it seems to be either way.

That is what I thought which makes the following very disturbing: "James Allan Donalson, 59, acknowledged removing his motherís pacemaker after she died in January"

In the first paragraph, it's stated that he "carved" it out of her chest. That just doesn't seem like something a good son would do.
