Staff at a mortuary in South Africa were stunned to discover that one of the bodies was very much alive.
The bizarre incident, which occurred at Carletonville morgue in Gauteng province, involved a woman who had been declared dead by paramedics after being involved in a road accident.
It wasn't until one of the morgue workers happened to check on her body in the mortuary fridge that it was discovered that she was actually still breathing.
The unnamed woman is now receiving treatment at a local hospital.
"As a family we won't talk about this unless the police, paramedics and the mortuary officials who were involved are present," said one of her family members.
"The issue is that we need answers, that's all we want and we don't have any clarity now."
An investigation in to the incident is currently ongoing.
