In a shocking incident, a man who was declared dead by the doctors at a hospital in Mumbai, “came alive” seconds before his autopsy.
The man, identified as Prakash, and aged between 45 and 50 years, was wheeled into Sion Hospital by cops, who said the man was dead. Later, upon detecting some movement, an attendant realised that the man was in fact alive.
The police brought the man to the hospital after they received a call that a man fell unconscious at ST bus depot on Sulochna Shetty Marg, stated Hindustan Times.
Washing its hands off the incident, the hospital said that, the policemen pressurised the doctors present at the time of the incident, and asked them to rush the job as they had some other duty to attend to. On the other hand, the police lay the blame entirely on the hospital staff.
NDTV quoting insiders, said, the dead man gained consciousness during the commotion. While the police was being informed, the doctor who attended on the ‘dead man’ immediately destroyed all records of the incident to cover up his mistake, according to Mid-Day.
Clearly blaming the police for the error, Suleman Merchant, dean of the hospital told the Hindustan Times, “Our casualty medical officer was informed of the police presence. The police kept telling the doctor that the patient was dead, and insisted he certify him urgently.”
This is not the first time that such an incident has occurred. In January this year, a man in China believed to have died allegedly came back to life and cried at his own funeral.
