Dead, alive, dead again! A 72-year-old man who was declared dead by a doctor at the District Hospital in Madhya Pradesh was found to be still breathing when his body was being sent for a postmortem after spending a whole night in the mortuary. The man, however, died, sometime immediately afterwards.

In a case of negligence, a doctor at a hospital in Madhya Pradesh declared the septuagenarian identified as Kashiram, hailing from Chhatarpur district as dead but he was found to be alive while being taken for a postmortem.
"A patient was declared dead by a doctor at 9:30 pm on June 20. When we saw him in the morning on June 21, he was still alive. However, he died sometime later. We have ordered an investigation in this case of negligence by the doctor," said Chief Medical Officer, Dr RS Roshan.
