"Robert Ettinger deanimated today at around
4pm Eastern Time. He was under hospice care
and had an ice bath sitting by his bedside.
His pronouncement and initiation of cooling
was very rapid. The perfusion went well and
he is now in the cooling box.

Much more later.

Safe journey Robert.  I hope we will all have a chance to see each other again to reminisce.

One of the things you don't hear much about is Robert Ettinger's kindness. He was a very kind and thoughtful man. When Russ Van Norden was desperately trying to raise money for Marie Sweet's suspension, and found only condolences, Ettinger kicked in. He loaned equipment for the suspension of James Bedford, and others along the way. More recently, Bob Nelson ran into some financial difficulty. Ettinger offered to pay for Bob's suspension if anything happened to him before he could receive any money from the movie. He also contributed to wonderful chapters to our book, something we are very proud of and will always cherish.

Two years ago Bob Nelson and his family visited Ettinger and stayed at his home. While he was there he interviewed Ettinger on camera. The quality is not very good, but workable. I will do my best to edit and improve the video. When I'm done I'll upload it and share the link here.

One thing Ettinger didn't lose, all the way to the end, was his clear thinking and sharp wit. He will be sorely missed in this community.

Here's to a speedy recovery and long life, Robert. You were so kind to me on this board, and I appreciated it.

These days, I prefer clarity to the public over cryocide which is a disinfectant apparently.

From what I understand he was unable to do the suicide plan. He did have a standby team there to cool him down as soon as he was declared legally dead.

What exactly do you mean by "he was unable"?

I don't have much information. Bob Called Robert Ettinger and found out that he was on his deathbed and only occasionally showing short signs of consciousness. Since he hadn't gone through with the suicide plan I can only assume that he was unable. After that Bob received a call that Mr. Ettinger had deanimated, was cooled down immediately, and received the best suspension possible. I don't know any more than that. Hopefully Mr. Ettinger's son will be kind enough to enlighten us with a few more details in the near future.
