A 40-year-old man identified as Sreekesh Kumar was found alive after being wrongly declared dead by doctors in the Indian city of Morabadad, Uttar Pradesh.
It was gathered that the man was on Thursday, Nov. 18, critically injured by a speeding motorcycle.
When his family took him to the hospital, the man who is an electrician was wrongly declared dead and was stored in a mortuary freezer for seven hours.
However, when police visited the following morning to identify the body and arrange an autopsy with his relatives, relatives noticed signs of movement and alerted doctors.
Recording the discovery, Mr Kuma’s sister-in-law Madhu Bala shouted:
“He’s not dead, in fact far from it. How did this happen? Look, he wants to say something, he is breathing.”
Speaking about the incident, Moradabad’s chief medical superintendent, Dr Shiv Singh, described the incident as the “rarest of rare cases”.
He told Times of India:
“The emergency medical officer had seen the patient at around 3am and there was no heartbeat. He told me he had examined the man multiple times.
“Therefore he was declared dead. In the morning, a police team and his family found him alive.”
It was gathered that after the shocking discovery, Mr Kumar was taken back to the hospital. He was put on a ventilator as he remained in a coma.
Sadly, he later died on Tuesday, Nov. 23, as doctors were unable to operate on him because of a bleeding disorder.
After he died due to the clot in his brain, Mr Kumar’s family vowed to take legal action against all those responsible for his death.
Meanwhile, District’s health department is now investigating the matter.
