In Brazil, street food vendor Raimundo Nonato Santana da Silva, 71, had a “miracle” escape after paramedics pronounced him dead and put him in a body bag.
On June 29, Da Silva suddenly fell sick while riding his motorbike in Araguaina. He fell off his bike and the paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.
The medics placed the 71-year-old’s body in a bag and fled the scene while the police authorities supervised the body until the coroners arrived.
But shortly after the medics left, the officers and a reporter covering the accident noticed the bag moving.
“We were in the right place at the right time,” TV reporter Geovanni Pereira told Globo News. “I think it was a miracle.”
“When I arrived, the bag was already closed,” Pereira told the local news outlet. “They opened it and I saw a small bubble of air coming out of the corner of his mouth. I performed CPR on him for ten minutes out of a gut instinct to help.”
The paramedics were then called back to the scene and they took the elderly man to the nearest hospital —alive.
The medics explained that they performed CPR on the Da Silva when they first arrived at the scene. However, they pronounced the old man dead “based on technical evaluation”.
They added that they will look over Da Silva’s medical records to try to comprehend what happened.
Meanwhile, the hospital where Da Silva was brought did not release updates on his condition.
Da Silva’s case is freakishly surprising, but this is not the first time that people have “come back from the dead”.
Last year, an elderly woman was also pronounced dead in Russia and spent a night in a hospital mortuary.
81-year-old Zinaida Kononova supposedly didn’t make it following surgery on a blocked intestine and her family was informed about it.
Zinaida’s body was then taken to the morgue at 1:10 am.
However, after seven hours, a mortuary staff “got the shock of her life” when she discovered Zinaida sprawled on the floor.
The 81-year-old apparently had fallen as she attempted to climb off a mortuary table and get out.
Zinaida was covered in blankets and immediately brought to intensive care at Gorshechensky central district hospital in Kursk Oblast.
