'Dead' woman comes back to life
A woman pronounced dead by doctors in Colombia
has been rushed back to the hospital after a funeral home worker saw
her move while preparing her body.
Noelia Serna was admitted to a Cali hospital on
Monday after suffering a heart attack and was on life support before
doctors declared her dead.
Speaking from the hospital, Dr Miguel Angel Saavedra said the
45-year-old showed no vital signs: "The electronic devices that she was
connected to showed that there was no heartbeat nor arterial tension.
Because of that, the respiratory therapist performed a test when she
removed the respirator and the patient could not breath on her own.
Sadly she was declared deceased."
Funeral home worker Jaime Aullon told reporters: "I stopped the
process. And as soon as I stopped I started looking at her whole body
and I noticed her midsection moving. I placed my hand here (pointing to
his nose and mouth) and I felt her breathing. I told my partner that
she should go back to hospital because she is alive."
It is being speculated that it could be a case of what is known as
Lazarus Syndrome, a rare condition where heart rate and breathing drop
below measurable levels before returning
