He arrived at about 3 am and didn’t have a heartbeat after multiple examinations and was then pronounced dead.

The body was then brought to a medical facility for post-mortem examinations, before being stored inside a freezer in the morgue.

Family noticed body moving

According to Times of India, the man’s family later arrived and his sister-in-law then noticed that his body was moving.

It appeared as though the now breathing man was trying to say something.

Suspended animation

The chief medical superintendent of Moradabad, Shiv Singh, said that doctors sometimes find it difficult to declare a person dead.

However, he stopped short of categorizing the incident as one that arose out of negligence before investigations were completed.

Singh explained that there is “suspended animation” where many vital organs are temporarily ceased without the person dying, which would lead to “extraordinary situations”.

The man’s family said that they will be reporting the doctor for negligence.
