"Dead' Irishman wakes up in morgue

Dead man found breathing on his way to the mortuary

A patient who was declared dead by doctors on Easter Sunday was very much alive when mortuary attendants arrived in the hospital ward to remove his body.

Officials at the Mater hospital in Dublin have begun an investigation. The man’s family had already been told that he had died when staff realised that he was breathing.
"Needless to say, the hospital is very perturbed at what happened.”
