'Dead' Man Comes Back to Life After Spending Night in Mortuary Freezer

November 22, 2021
By Tim Binnall

An Indian man who had been declared dead following a gruesome accident stunned doctors and his grieving family members when he suddenly came back to life after spending a staggering seven hours in a mortuary freezer. According to a local media report, the astounding tale began last Thursday evening when Sreekesh Kumar was struck by a motorcycle in the city of Moradabad. When the unfortunate man was taken to a local hospital, doctors determined that he had died due to injuries from the collision as he showed no signs of life. Kumar's body was subsequently placed in a mortuary freezer overnight ahead of a postmortem examination the following day, which is when things took a surprising turn.

The next morning, as the man's heartbroken family were preparing to complete the necessary paperwork for an autopsy to be performed, his sister-in-law stopped in her track when she saw his body moving. "He's not at all dead, in fact far from it. How did this happen," she exclaimed, "look, he wants to say something, he is breathing!" Kumar's other loved ones as well as doctors and police on site quickly ran over to look and, indeed, the 'dead' man was quite alive. Medical personnel promptly removed him from the chilly setting and transported him to a unit where he is currently being treated for injuries sustained in the accident.

As for how the mix-up could have happened, the head of the hospital indicated that Kumar had been examined several times by doctors that evening and was ultimately declared dead because they could not detect a pulse. Calling it an "extraordinary situation," he theorized that the accident victim could have entered into a state of "suspended animation" which led to the grave misdiagnosis. Meanwhile, one unnamed worker at the hospital theorized that Kumar's revival may have been miraculous as the freezer holding his body had flipped on and off throughout the night which he believes may have somehow brought the man back to life.

This doesn’t say great things about their mortuary freezers.

I took a business law class and the instructor told a story about having to do time in the local morgue during law school. His class had just gone through an ethics class when they were watching an autopsy. The cause of death was determined to be freezing to death (this was in Houston, nobody here freezes to death outside).

So, he was live when they put him in the morgue and froze to death there. The MD doing the autopsy put some other case of death that I cannot recall. The law students discussed it to determine whether it was an ethics test done purposely for them or a screw up where the city/county killed someone. They chose the latter which turned out to be true (and they never told what they saw). I was pretty disappointed they would not report what they saw, especially after just going through ethics.

Had to laugh at the unintentionally punny "Grave misdiagnosis".

Yeah, that's much more likely than your doctors completely screwing up, for which you and your organization would be held responsible...... Wink

It's like Mark Twain said, "The news of his death was greatly exaggerated".
