The Indian, who was mistaken for dead, spent several hours in a cold box. He actually died a few days after waking up from the effects of hypothermia. The BBC news server reported on the case in Tamil Nadu, India.
The 70-year-old Mr Balasubrahmanjama was brought to the hospital on Monday due to health problems, where doctors stated his death. After returning home, the body was stored in a refrigerated box provided by the funeral service.
However, when her workers wanted to pick up the deceased the next day, when the funeral was to take place, they found that the man was trembling and alive. They therefore took him back to the hospital, but to a different one than before. Unfortunately, the man died there on Friday. The director of the second hospital said that the patient was sick at the time of admission and died of pulmonary complications.
According to the funeral service, the brother of the allegedly dead man signed a death report at the first hospital, but the police chief claims that the family is now unable to present the document. Relatives are accused of “hasty or negligent conduct that endangered human life.”
