Indian man found alive after night in morgue freezer

An Indian man declared dead after a road accident shocked
his relatives when they found him still breathing despite a night in the
freezer of a hospital morgue. 

Srikesh Kumar was rushed to a clinic in a critical condition
after he was hit by a motorbike in Moradabad, east of the capital New

He was transported to a private medical facility where he
was declared dead on arrival by the doctor, and then transported to a
government hospital for post-mortem on Friday.

“The emergency medical officer examined him. He did not
find any signs of life and hence declared him dead,” Rajendra Kumar, the
hospital’s medical superintendent, told AFP on Sunday.

The doctor said police were informed and the body was placed
in the morgue freezer until his family arrived six hours later. 

“When a police team and his family came over to initiate
the paperwork for the autopsy, he was found alive,” he added. 

Rajendra Kumar said the 45-year-old was undergoing further
treatment but was still in a coma.

“This is nothing short of a miracle,” he added.

An investigation was under way to determine how the doctors
mistakenly declared him dead.
