He was transported to a private medical facility where he was declared dead on arrival by the doctor. Subsequently, they transported his body to a government hospital for a post-mortem on Friday.

“The emergency medical officer examined him. He did not find any signs of life and hence declared him dead,” Rajendra Kumar, the hospital’s medical superintendent, told AFP on Sunday.

‘Nothing short of a miracle’

The doctor said police were informed and the body was placed in the morgue freezer until his family arrived six hours later. “When a police team and his family came over to initiate the paperwork for the autopsy, he was found alive,” he added.

Rajendra Kumar said the 45-year-old was undergoing further treatment but was still in a coma. “This is nothing short of a miracle,” he added. An investigation was underway to determine how the doctors mistakenly declared him dead.

In a similar unreal and miraculous turn of events, a woman survived a collision with a semi-truck that caused her vehicle to fold over itself. The woman was taken to a hospital with pain in her ribs and head, and a laceration on her face. But she did not sustain serious injuries.

The world has witnessed a number of incidents in which many people escaped death. In Mumbai, recently, one elderly woman survived after slipping into the gap between a moving train and the platform.
