A mother from Paraguay came back to life in a body bag after being pronounced dead from the doctors earlier that day, according to a report.
The patient, Gladys Rodríguez de Duarte, went to the hospital after experiencing a severe spike in blood pressure. She also had a ovarian cancer.
Two hours later, the attending physician experiencing a severe spike in blood pressure, mistakenly declared the 46-year-old woman as dead. Later on, he handed a death certificate to her husband and daughter.
Undertakers brought the presumed cadaver to Duarte e Hijos funeral home. The staff noticed the body is moving inside the bag.
They brought the “resurrected” patient to the intensive care immediately. Her condition is “delicate but in stable condition.”
The patient’s husband, Maximino Duarte Ferreira, filed a complaint against the doctor. He said the hospital purposely declared his wife dead because they no longer wanted to treat her.
“He assumed her dead and handed her naked to me like an animal with her death certificate,” he said in an interview. They did not even bother to revive his wife, he added.
Meanwhile, doctors denied any foul play, reviving the patient for several times before they pronounced her dead.
They assumed she suffered from catalepsy, a condition characterized by muscle rigidity and a complete lack of response to outside stimuli.
