Oklahoma man who was declared dead says he feels 'pretty good'

Oklahoma City_Zach Dunlap says he feels "pretty good'' four months after he was declared brain dead at a Wichita Falls hospital.

Dunlap was pronounced dead November 19th at United Regional Healthcare System after an all-terrain vehicle accident. Doctors were about to remove his organs for transplant when he moved his foot and hand when a pocketknife was scraped across his foot and pressure was applied under a fingernail.

On NBC's "Today,'' he said he feels "pretty good'' but needs more patience for rehabilitation.  The 21-year-old Frederick, Oklahoma, man says he remembers hearing doctors declare him dead but doesn't recall the accident.  Now, he has the pocketknife and says he's just thankful someone didn't give up on him.
