A 20-year-old man who was thought to be dead stunned his grieving friends and family members when he woke up at his own funeral, reports say.
Mohammad Furqan, of Lucknow, a city in northern India's state of Uttar Pradesh, was admitted to a private hospital on June 21 after he sustained head injuries in a serious accident, according to reports
The patient was declared dead after his family allegedly informed hospital staff they could not afford to pay more than R140,000 of his multiplying medical bills.
Furqan's body was returned home to his family members, who were in the process of burying their loved one when the unthinkable happened.
"Devastated, we were preparing for the burial when some of us saw movement in his limbs," Furqan's older brother, Mohammad Irfan, disclosed in an interview.
"We immediately took Furqan to the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital where the doctors said he was alive and have put him on ventilator support," he added.
Furqan remains in critical condition but is "definitely not brain-dead," according to doctors treating the patient.
"He has pulse, blood pressure and his reflexes are working. He has been put on ventilator support."
Lucknow Chief Medical Officer Narendra Agarwal acknowledged the incident and said the matter "will be thoroughly probed."
