I'm wondering what his 'life review' was like .... I bet I could guess.
"Clinically dead" means he's being kept alive on life support, but there's no brain activity. Typically when one is clinically dead they will expire as soon as they are removed from life support. Usually you only keep someone on life support when they're clinically dead so you can harvest their organs (assuming they're a donor).
