We All Shine On

John Lennon was murdered 34 years ago today. Here’s a documentary about his last day, December 8th 1980. I saw it originally in December 2010 on the 30th anniversary his murder. It’s noticeable for the interview that begins around the 27 minute mark with Dr Stephen Lynn, the Emergency Room doctor who attended to John when he was brought to Roosevelt Hospital that night. From an emergency medicine perspective, he tells us that Lennon, in the attempt to save his life, had a thoracotomy – every EM clinician will understand what that means. He retells the story in such a way that you re-realise the horror of his killing.
