Jim and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while
they were walking past the hospital swimming pool,
Jim suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the
pool and stayed there.
Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and
pulled Jim out.
When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna's heroic act, she
immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she
now considered her mentally stable.
When she went to tell Edna the news she said, "Edna, I have good
news and bad news.
The good news is you are being discharged; since you were able to
rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the Life of
another that you have a sound mind.
The bad news is, Jim, the patient you saved, hung himself in the
bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him.
I am so sorry, but he's dead."
Edna replied, "He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry....How soon can I go home?"
