A man, Himanshu Bharadwaj, who was declared dead after a serious car accident recently got back to life before his autopsy.
Bharadwaj tightly escaped being sliced up after a whole night in a morgue before it was discovered he is alive.
His family described the whole incident as miraculous after the pathologist at a hospital in Nagpur, India, found a pulse just as he was picking up a blade to perform the autopsy.
Himanshu was resuscitated and rushed to a different ward in the hospital after the error was realised.
Meanwhile, a large crowd gathered outside to protest against the perceived negligence.
Bharadwaj was seriously hurt in a car accident on Monday, after which he was sent to the hospital. His condition worsened and he was declared dead.
Dr. Gedam of the Chhindwara District Hospital said the patient’s “respiration was dysfunctional” and his “pulse was also missing,” hence the erroneous conclusion that he had died.
Gedam added, “However, his respiratory organs began responding this morning.
“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.”
