They may be placed on life-support, even though the chances of being revived are almost nil, it does more than create an unrealistic hope for the survivors. Life-support systems also prolong the agony. The victim is in a state of suspended animation and is artificially kept alive. The services of a group legal plan can bring a merciful end to this dilemma.
