What could be described as a tragicomedy took place in Kerala, a state in Southern India, where the family of 51-year-old Rathnam from Kerala got the shock of their lives when she was found to be alive after reportedly spending an hour in the morgue!
Rathnam was critically ill and was undergoing treatment for jaundice and liver and kidney-related issues at a medical college hospital in Madurai for the last two months, reported the Deccan Chronicle. Being kept alive with the help of a ventilator, the doctors were convinced there was no hope for survival. With that in mind, her relatives decided to take her home so she could die in peace in her own home.
When more relatives reached the morgue to take her away for her last rites, they found her alive and breathing!
The police was notified and a checkup confirmed that she was alive. She was rushed to the ICU of St John’s Hospital.
Unfortunately, despite her miraculous recovery, she finally succumbed to her illnesses and died later in the evening.
