New York, June 29 (ANI): An upcoming book says that George Washington might have become a Frankenstein's monster had his personal physician prevailed.

Out in August, 'Strange But True, America' reveals that when the father of America died aged 67, his body was packed in ice.

"Dr. William Thornton proposed thawing the body-first in cool water and then with warm blankets and rubbing of the skin, with a subsequent tracheotomy, artificial respiration at the tracheotomy site and a transfusion of lamb's blood," the New York Post quoted Lone Pine, John Hafnor and Dale Crawford as having written in the book.

The tome further reveals that it was Martha Washington who firmly vetoed Thornton's bizarre plan for an attempted resurrection. (ANI)
