In a classic case of "Lazarus Syndrome" a dead woman who was being prepared for burial suddenly started breathing again.
Its rare but it can happen, despite being declared dead only one day prior the woman started breathing again on her own and was moved to a hospital where it was found that she was actually in a coma.
Funeral home workers in the Colombian city of Cali got the shock of a lifetime when an apparently dead 45-year-old woman suddenly started breathing and moving as they prepared her for burial, AFP reported Wednesday.

I remember a story that circulated during the civilian uprising against the regime of Nicolae Ceausescu, Romania.I don't know if it's just an urban legend, but here it is: During that uprising the civilian victims were brought in to a certain morgue. On some late night a young dead woman was brought into the morgue, and after the people who brought her in had left, the warden lifted up the sheet that she was covered in and noticed that she was a really beautiful woman. He also noticed she was still 'warm', and thought by himself something like, "Hmm, no one around, and what a beauty she is..."... [More]

Do Not Resuscitate One of the places I worked was very rural and we had to deal with forest fires all the time...I have been on several mobilizations for fires in Washington...one of the guys I met that worked for Department of Natural resources as a firefighter went out and got a tattoo on his chest that said "DNR"...everyone looked at it and thought that it was a medical Do Not Resuscitate protocol rather than anything to do with firefighting...He went back and had "Department of Natural resources" added to the top of the tattoo in smaller type, just to make it clear... I know this is of top... [More]

Supposing she wasn't breathing, how is this possible without extreme brain damage?

I think thats how they decided it was a good idea to put a pin through the big toe of the decesed..just to make sure they were dead..

Supposing she wasn't breathing, how is this possible without extreme brain damage? Perhaps this why she is a coma now???? :innocent:

I'm thinking bfore I click this "Let me guess.. it was recovery from heart failure." But, I was surprised to find differently. It should've been titled 'dead' woman comes back to life.. Geez, if it says right here they discovered she was actually in a coma, why bother reading the rest of the article?.. :/ OMG ITS THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, EVERYONE RUN FOR YOUR LIFE'S!!!! LOL. XD Quick one! ^^

this is part of why they embalm people... good thing they didn't drain her juices yet.

Then the correct wording would be "supposed dead women comes back to life" not as a fact that she was dead and then came back to life...another case of misleading headlines to lure readers.

That's different.
