‘Dead man’ wakes up at own funeral

NEW DELHI: A man who had been declared dead by doctors last Monday, July 1, woke up just right before his body was supposed to be buried.

Upon seeing Mohammad Furqan’s body move during the funeral ceremony, his family immediately took him to a hospital in India.

The doctors at the Ram Manohar Lohia hospital declared that the 20-year-old man was alive.

As per the news report, they placed Furqan on ventilator support.

“We had paid Rs 7 lakh to the private hospital earlier and when we told them that we had run out of money, they had declared Furqan dead on Monday,” his elder brother Mohammad Irfan was quoted as saying.

After Lucknow chief medical officer Narendra Agarwal caught wind of the alarming incident, he stated that they will be investigating the matter.

“The patient is in critical condition but definitely not brain dead.

He has pulse, blood pressure and his reflexes are working,” the doctor treating Furqan said in the report.
