Woman Comes Back to Life After Being Declared Dead in South Africa?
A South African woman is recovering in hospital after being discovered alive in a mortuary fridge. The woman was taken to the morgue after having been declared dead by paramedics following a road accident.
But when a morgue worker returned to check on the body in the fridge, he found the woman was breathing. The woman, who is being kept anonymous, is now being treated in a hospital.
The family of the woman is rightfully confused and shocked, launching an investigation into the events and demanding answers. “As a family we won’t talk about this unless the police, paramedics and the mortuary officials who were involved are present. We need answers,” said a family member of the woman.
This is not the first time this year someone has woken up in a mortuary after being declared dead. In January an inmate at a jail in Spain’s Asturias region regained consciousness hours before an autopsy was due to be performed. Three doctors had certified him dead.
