Indian Man, 20, Wakes Up at his own Funeral After Being Pronounced Dead by Doctors

HeartbeatMohammad Furqan, 20, was pronounced dead by Indian medical professionals last week, coincidentally after the man’s family told the hospital that was treating him that they no longer had the funds to pay for his care. The man had been unconscious since June 21 after being involved in an accident. But later at his funeral, mourners were shocked to see him move during his funeral prior to his burial.

His older brother Mohammad Irfan said that they "immediately took Furqan to the Ram Manohar Lohia hospital where the doctors said he was alive and have put him on ventilator support."

The city’s chief medical officer says that an investigation is underway into the country’s medical practices, as the man is "definitely not brain dead. He has pulse, blood pressure and his reflexes are working."
