DE­CLARED ‘ DEAD’ BY DOC­TORS, MAN FOUND ALIVE IN MOR­TU­ARY

- AGE COR­RE­SPON­DENT

In a seem­ingly bizarre in­ci­dent, a deaf and dumb man, de­clared dead by doc­tors, was found to be alive three days later when the po­lice went to re­ceive his “body” from the mor­tu­ary.

The in­ci­dent took place in Ali­garh dis­trict where the vic­tim was in­jured in a road ac­ci­dent and was brought to the hos­pi­tal in an un­con­scious state.

The doc­tors at­tend­ing on him de­clared him dead on Au­gust 29 and sent his “body” to the mor­tu­ary.

His fam­ily was traced by the po­lice and when they ar­rived on Sun­day night, they were taken to the mor­tu­ary by the po­lice where the vic­tim was found to be alive.

Mean­while, the fam­ily mem­bers of the vic­tim cre­ated a ruckus on Mon­day over the is­sue and de­manded strict ac­tion against the erring doc­tors, whose lax­ity led to the in­ci­dent.
