Man Presumed Dead Wakes Up And Screams As His Blood Is About To Be Drained

Man Presumed Dead Wakes Up And Screams As His Blood Is About To Be Drained

In a pretty dangerous case of crossed wires, a man who was presumed to be dead screamed as he 'came back to life', just as hospital staff began the process of embalming him, local media reports.

Peter Kigen, 32, woke up when mortuary staff sliced his leg open, causing him to regain consciousness and scream.

The Kenyan man had been pronounced dead four hours before, as reported by Kenyan newspaper The Standard.

From a village in Bureti, he collapsed with what is believed to be a 'stomach ailment' while he was at home, with his family rushing him to hospital on Tuesday afternoon.

Kigen's brother says that a nurse informed the family that he'd died 'long before' he got to hospital.

He told the news outlet: "The nurse later handed me a document to take to the mortuary attendant before my brother's body was moved to the morgue.

But four hours later, while mortuary staff were preparing to drain the blood of Kigen's body and start the embalming process, they reportedly realised he was alive.

Kigen's uncle, Denis Langat, claims his nephew regained consciousness and "wailed in pain" after the mortuary staff made an incision in his leg to start the embalming process, Citizen TV reports.

His brother said: "The mortician called me into the morgue, and we saw him make movements. We were shocked.

"We could not understand how they could move a person who is still alive into the mortuary."

Kigen has a chronic illness, and he told reporters what had happened from his hospital bed.

He said: "I cannot believe what just happened. How did they establish that I was dead?

"I did not even know where I was when I regained consciousness, but I thank God for sparing my life. I will serve him for the rest of my life."

But according to the medical chief of the hospital Gilbert Cheruiyot said that the family didn't even wait for his death certificate, instead whisking him off to the morgue.

Dr Cheruiyot said: "They moved him to the mortuary, on their own."

He said that doctors had been treating other patients.

He added: "They asked Kigen's relatives to give them some time, but they accused the clinicians of taking too much time and decided to take him to the mortuary.

"It was while the mortician was getting ready to embalm his body that she noticed some signs of life.

"The patient was later taken to the ward and is responding well to treatment. We hope to discharge him in a few days."

He urged families to follow correct protocol.

"Before a body is moved the mortuary, it has to be certified by a clinician," he said.

"In Kigen's case, we can only say he was lucky, especially because of our qualified mortician who checked him before making any move."
