Watch Video: Dead Man Found Alive After 7 Hours In Hospital`S Mortuary Freezer
Moradabad: A man who was presumed to be dead and kept inside the freezer of a hospital mortuary for more than seven hours was found alive, leaving doctors in bewilderment and swelling the hearts of his family members with happiness. This sounds like a plot straight out of a movie, but the script has actually played out in Moradabad district of Uttar Pradesh.
According to reports, Srikesh Kumar, an electrician, was hit by a speeding motorbike following which he was taken to the district hospital on Thursday night. The doctors had declared him dead. The following day, the hospital staff put the body in the freezer.
In a video that went viral, his sister can be heard saying: “He’s not at all dead. How did this happen? Look, he wants to say something, he is breathing.
Moradabad’s chief medical superintendent Dr Shiv Singh, said: “The emergency medical officer had seen the patient at 3 a.m and there was no heartbeat. He had examined the man multiple times. Thereafter, he was declared dead but, in the morning, a police team and his family found him alive. A probe has been ordered. Our priority is now to save his life.”
Kumar is now undergoing treatment at a health centre in Meerut where his condition has improved.
According to his sister-in-law, “he is yet to regain consciousness”. “We will lodge a complaint against the doctors for negligence as they almost killed Srikesh by putting him in a freezer,” she added.
