The staff of a Kenyan morgue got the shock of their life when a man who had been pronounced dead regained consciousness and began calling for help.
Paul Mutora tried to kill himself by swallowing insecticide and following a status of critical condition was pronounced dead on Wednesday night but according to the hospital’s chief medic the drug used to treat him slowed the heart beat, which may have led to the mistaken call of death.
Dr Joseph Mburu, the superintendent in charge of Naivasha District Hospital says:
“This might have confused medical personnel, but the victim was saved before he could be embalmed,”
According to reports Mutora’s family even came to view his body on Thursday and then returned back home to plan funeral arrangements.
The father said:
“But in the afternoon we were informed, he was alive and were left in shock,”
Mutora is now recovering on a male ward in the hospital in Nairobi. He says, “This was a mistake from the start and I apologise to my father.”
Miracle or what?!
