So the bank was like "Sorry we were sorry about your dad"?

If there were administering CPR during the 30 minutes, it is not accurate to say that his brain was without oxygen for thirty minutes.  It was deprived of oxygen, so there is still likely some damage.  But if your brain had no oxygen for thirty minutes, there would be nothing left to revive.

Just wait until he really DOES die.  The bank will probably take months to confirm it, and refuse to do any transactions without him coming into the bank branch in person to sign for it.

Yeah, half an hour with no blood to his brain... I'm thinking they weren't wrong to announce his death. Maybe they got the guy's body working, but I don't think their family member is really in there any more.

I'm a little confused as to the family's outrage at the bank. I guess they just are grieving and want SOMEONE to be angry at to make themselves feel better, so they picked the bank. Even though the bank didn't give the guy the heart attack or do anything wrong like impede rescue attempts or something... Who the hell can be mad at them for thinking someone was dead after he couldn't be revived for 30 minutes? Being pissy with the bank branch isn't going to bring the guy back, people.

"family very upset"

Really? The branch handled this nicely. They were mistaken as to whether he died or not but did things extraordinarily considerate to family, branch users and workers. Calm down and understand that you're upset about your dad not the tasteful way the bank handled it, Francis.
