Dead Woman Found Alive in South Africa Morgue Fridge
A South African woman is recovering in hospital after being discovered alive in a mortuary fridge. The woman was taken to Carletonville morgue, in Gauteng province, having been declared dead by paramedics following a road accident.
Ambulance company Distress Alert said she had shown "no form of life", South Africa's TimesLive website reports. But when a morgue worker returned to check on the body in the fridge, he found the woman was breathing.
An official has confirmed to the BBC the woman is now being treated in hospital after being referred by forensics officers. She has not been named.
An investigation into the incident is being carried out, but Distress Alert operations manager Gerrit Bradnick said there was "no proof of any negligence" on his company's behalf.
"This did not happen because our paramedics are not properly trained," he told TimesLive.
Mr Bradnick said she was one of several people involved in a car accident which left two others dead on Sunday, 24 June. In January an inmate at a jail in Spain's Asturias region regained consciousness hours before an autopsy was due to be performed. Three doctors had certified her dead.
It is also not the first time this has happened in South Africa. Seven years ago, a 50-year-old man woke up screaming in an Eastern Cape morgue .
In 2016 another road accident victim, from KwaZulu Natal, was declared dead , only to be found breathing the next day.
