Indian Covid victim, 76, wakes up on her funeral bier moments before she is due to be cremated because family thought she was dead
An elderly woman in India narrowly avoided being burned alive after her family mistakenly thought she was dead and prepared her for cremation.
The woman, identified as Shakunt Gaikwad, tested positive for Covid last week.
Yahoo reported her family took her to Silver Jubilee Hospital in Barti but as the wards were full they were turned away.
As they waited for an ambulance she became unconscious and the family mistakenly thought she had died and so prepared her for cremation.
But moments before it was lit, Shakunt woke up on her own funeral bier in a panic and started crying.
Local police confirmed the story.
She was later transported back to hospital to be cared for.
Oh thats so very lucky for this lady. Sounds terrifying
Not true, nurses verify death too!!! Pulse checked, stethoscope on heart, ear to mouth to listen for breathing, painful stimulus, check pupils reflex. I'm guessing this process wasn't carried out
Thank goodness she was not placed in a coffin beforehand.
That's was close! Can you imagine?! So glad she woke when she did
Omg. Dont they have to be certified dead. Ooh gave me chills
Must be a heavy sleeper not to wake up being dumped on a pile of wood..
What a shock,poor lady. That's just awful,didn't Dr's check for a pulse,check the eyes for responses,breathing etc?.
Many people in India live all their lives without ever using an offi al document of any description. Not surprised at all with this tale.
How many more were unconscious and cremated without checking.
So how many have they burnt or drowned alive due to lack of medical checks?
WHEW!! That was close!!
Did nobody poke her to check?
Oh my goodness.
$1.9 billion for the space program and $2.1 billion spent in 2018 for the nuclear program. Just no healthcare
How could such a thing happen, unbelievable.
That's what I call a lucky escape. Don't doctors certify death in India?
Only in India ...
So if they don't need doctors to declare a person is dead, then a lot of people could just have been murdered.
Drinking cow urine, covering themselves in cow dung to prect themselves from a vir s, India really need to educate their population.
No one thought to check for a pulse?
Yesterday in this paper some senior indian offical was promoting drinking cows urine to cure covid and others where covering their bodies with cows dung which is also supposedly a cure......meanwhile they have a space programme.....
I wonder how many haven't been as lucky to wake up and were maybe in a coma.
