Well to be fair, yes his comment was just about as insensitive as you can possibly be, but there is a small margin of truth to it. I've seen many devastating brain injuries (or in my case, post-brain tumor removal) where the person is just a breathing vegetable since their brain stem is just fine. -Or worse, someone who is coherent enough to know what's going on, but has such deficits that they have zero quality of life.
But at the same time, I've seen some seriously
miraculous cases as well. We simply don't know enough about the human brain to know exactly what will happen, and it's always
worth trying your best to save the person's life.
