Two Mentally Disabled Patients

John and Elise were both patients in a mental hospital..

One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, John suddenly jumped into the deep end.

He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.

Elise promptly jumped in to save him.

She swam to the bottom and pulled him out.

When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Elise's heroic act, she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital as she now considered her to be mentally stable.

When she went to tell Elise the news she said: 'Elise, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you're being discharged since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of the person you love. I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness. The bad news is that John hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he's dead.'

Elise replied. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ..

'He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry'
