Getting it dead wrong: woman found alive in morgue fridge

04 July 2018

An investigation is underway after a South African woman who was pronounced dead at the scene of a auto crash by an ambulance company, was reportedly found alive inside a mortuary.

However a morgue worker checked on the body in the mortuary fridge sometime later only to discover she was breathing.

The South African woman had been certified dead by paramedics at the scene in the Gauteng province, south-west of Johannesburg on 24 June.

BBC reports that the unnamed woman is now being treated in hospital.

The ambulance company's operations manager has said that there is "no sign of negligence" on the service's behalf.

He added that two women are among his top candidates for the job. "It's a great group of intellectual talent", Trump said. Leonard Leo, an outside legal activist, will be another key member of the president's advisory team, sources said.

Responding to the incident, emergency official Bradnick said paramedics had "no idea how it happened".

"We're not in the business of declaring living people dead, we're in the business of keeping people alive", Bradnick added.

The case of the woman who seemingly came back to life has baffled paramedics in South Africa.

"When he pulled out the woman's body, he saw that she was breathing", an employee said.

The family is however demanding answers as investigation has been opened.

The man said that the family of the woman were in shock.

Local reports say the woman was among a number of people caught up in a auto crash on June 24 which left two others dead.

"We are investigating the case and we will present our findings once it has been concluded".

In another frightening case earlier this year, a Spanish prisoner regained consciousness hours before an autopsy was carried out.

It is also not the first time this has happened in South Africa. In 2016 another road accident victim, from KwaZulu Natal, was declared dead, only to be found breathing the next day.
