A South African women was found alive in a morgue fridge several hours after she was pronounced dead at the scene of a auto crash.
The woman, who had suffered serious head injuries, was rushed to Leratong Hospital in nearby Krugersdorp, where she remains.
"When our ambulance arrived on the scene, we followed all the procedures", Gerrit Bradnick, operations manager at ambulance service Distress Alert, told the German DPA news agency.
The woman, who was not identified, was thought to be mortally wounded when she and others were ejected June 24 after a driver lost control of the auto they were traveling in.
"Thinking about her injuries, how long she lay waiting for the mortuary officials, the trip back to the morgue, then how she would have been undressed, weighed and then put in the fridge... we are just thankful she is alive", he told Times Live.
But when a morgue worker returned to check on the body in the fridge, he found the woman was breathing.
It wouldn't be the first time someone has been declared dead but were actually alive all long.
