But shocked staff discovered he still had a pulse when his family arrived to identify him, The Evening Standard reported.
He was then rushed to Mahatma Gandhi hospital where staff spent five hours attempting to resuscitate him before he passed away.
His father, Peter Mkhize, told The Times: "I have no words to express how I feel about what happened to my child.
"To spend the entire night and morning in the mortuary refrigerator is wrong."
