This is rather humorous in a very dark, bleak kinda way.
Apparently, a 92-year old German woman woke up in a morgue just hours after a doctor mistakenly pronounced her as being dead. Two days later, the woman passed away at her home from a heart condition, which was completely unrelated to the original misdiagnosis.
A prosecutor has charged the 53-year old physician who made the erroneous call, charging him with negligent bodily harm. If convicted, the unnamed doctor could face a fine or even possibly jail time.
According to NY Daily News, the doctor made the misdiagnosis after the woman’s caregiver found the woman without a pulse and not breathing. She was sent to the funeral home where, a few hours later, she awoke and began screaming, alerting nearby staff.
