Mistery As ‘Dead’ Man Wakes Up After Spending The Night In A MORGUE
A man who was wrongly pronounced dead after a car crash in India narrowly avoided being cut up in a morgue when doctors realised he was still alive.
Himanshu Bharadwaj’s family has claimed a miracle after the pathologist at a hospital in Nagpur detected a pulse just as he was picking up a blade to perform an autopsy.
The patient was resuscitated and rushed to a separate ward in the hospital after the error was realised.
Meanwhile a large crowd gathered outside to protest against the perceived negligence, News18 reports.
Bharadwaj was seriously hurt in a car accident yesterday, after which he was sent to hospital.
His condition worsened and he was declared brain dead – and then medically dead – before being sent for autopsy.
Dr Gedam, of Chhindwara District Hospital, said the patient’s ‘respiration was dysfunctional’ and his ‘pulse was also missing’.
“The man was declared brain-dead and upon his arrival at Chhindwara hospital his respiration was dysfunctional and the pulse was also missing. .
However, his respiratory organs began responding this morning,” Dr C Gedam of the Chhindwara District Hospital said. “At times, in brain-dead patients, the heart and the respiratory system stop functioning transiently, which seems to be the case here. .
Himanshu is still brain-dead. Thus, we have referred him to Nagpur due to lack of sufficient facilities locally,” the doctor added.
