An Indian man was declared dead following a motorcycle accident and placed in a morgue freezer – but shocked his family when they discovered that he was still breathing the next day.
Srikesh Kumar, 45, was in critical condition after he was struck by the motorcycle in Moradabad, east of the capital New Delhi, on Friday, Agence France-Presse reported.
He was declared dead on arrival at a private medical facility and was then taken to a government hospital.
“The emergency medical officer examined him. He did not find any signs of life and hence declared him dead,” Rajendra Kumar, the hospital’s medical superintendent, told the news agency on Sunday.
The body was then placed inside the freezer until his relatives arrived six hours
