Tonight at 10 ET Anderson Cooper will present a special report on people that although according to their doctors must have been dead they are still alive. On of them is Greek American Yiannis Karimalis.

“In 1970, when doctors diagnosed Greek-American Yiannis Karimalis with stomach cancer and only gave him a few months to live, he decided to move back to Ikaria, his birth island. There, he reasoned, he could be buried more inexpensively among his fellow Greeks.

But when he moved back to the island he didn’t die. He has lived nearly 40 years more. And when he returned to America on a recent visit, he discovered that his doctors were all dead.” Read more on CNN.
