Granny who "came back to life" was dead all along, says hospital director

The director of the Soon Udon Thani Hospital in Thailand's north east  has said that the 70 year old woman who relatives thought had come back to life was dead all along. 

 

Relatives were shocked when Phinit Sophajorn, 70, opened her eyes and appeared to breathe.

 

Her husband aged 73 was washing her face in a final ritual before the coffin was sealed for cremation.

 

The ceremony was cancelled and she was taken home. 

 

Now it appears Phinit has actually died. 

 

Hospital director Dr Narong Thadadech said that the patient was transferred from Nong Han Hospital on the 7th of October with a blocked artery leading to the brain and thyroid problems.

She was given oxygen and placed on a respirator.

 

By 20th October she was given little chance of recovery and relatives decided to take her home to die.

 

He said that the woman had died for two or three days but that her eyes may have opened due to a reflex action of certain cells brought on by the cold of a cooling coffin. 

 

There was no pulse and the body was limp indicating that she had died several days ago. After a 24 period of rigor mortis the body had relaxed. 

 

He reiterated that people were checked for brain death, heart function and breathing - if these vital signs were not present the patient was dead. 

 

Doctors usually perform such checks after accidents or sudden death but at home this might be ascertained by relatives. They could always call in doctors for confirmation, he said.

In the UK a doctor always had to pronounce life extinct, except in cases like no head.

 

If someone had no medical treatment within 14 days, was not in hospital, or had died a sudden, violent, or unnatural death, then the coroner could order a PM and an inquest. This is where no doctor was willing to sign a death certificate.

 

Here, take a vote and buy some lottery tickets!

strange that on facebook they are reporting she is alive and that she was resuscitated by paramedics after her daughter (a doctor) found a week pulse after she opened her eyes and took a few breaths, seems someone has it wrong
