A Kenyan man who was reportedly declared dead by medical doctors came back to life barely 3 hours in a mortuary. According to the news, 32-year-old Peter Kigen collapsed in his home on the 24th of November and was rushed to the Kapkatet hospital in Kericho county.
He shocked the morgue staff as he jumped up and screamed in pains when they cut his leg in the embalmment process.
Kigen suffered from a chronic illness, and his brother told the local media that he was already dead, according to what the nurse told him.
“When I went back to the casualty department at around 7.45 pm, I learnt my brother was dead. A nurse told me that he died long before we arrived at the hospital.
“The nurse later handed me a document to take to the mortuary attendant before my brother’s body was moved to the morgue.”
Speaking on the issue, the Mr. Peter Kigen said;
“I cannot believe what just happened. How did they establish that I was dead?”
The hospital’s medical superintendent Gilbert Cheruiyot told another version of the story.
According to him, Kigen was in critical condition when he was brought in, and his relatives were the ones who didn’t wait for a certification of his dead before taking him to the morgue.
He has been taken back to the hospital and is responding well to treatments.
