I'm not sure how I feel about this, but it's pretty obvious the doctors throught they were doing the right thing, given the circumstances. It's a sure bet, though, that someone's going to be incensed about this, and heads--- no doubt--- will roll. Do Good Samaritan laws extend to euthanasia? (or does this not apply, since they were medical personnel?)
