Dead Woman Comes Back to Life at funeral home.

‘Corpse’ comes back to life at Colombia funeral home.

BOGOTA — 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.

Local media said the women had been declared clinically dead at a medical facility Tuesday after having been hospitalized in serious condition with a neurological condition a day earlier.

“The instruments the patient was connected to gave no blood pressure or heart rate readings,” said Miguel Angel Saavedra, a doctor at the clinic where the woman was treated.

Medical staff at the facility signed the women’s death certificate and her body was transferred to a funeral home to be prepared for burial.

About two hours later, funeral home employee Jaime Aullon was just about to inject embalming fluid into Serna’s left leg when he saw her move.

“She was moving her right arm,” he said. “I stopped the procedure and brought her back to the hospital to be treated.”

Noelia Serna, 45, was readmitted to hospital and was in a coma, doctors said.

On rare occasions, a person’s heart rate and breathing can drop to undetectable levels, leading doctors to erroneously declare a patient dead, said neurosurgeon Juan Mendoza Vega, a member of the Colombian National Medical Ethics Board.

Noelia Serna, 45,who has multiple sclerosis, was admitted to the same Cali University Hospital on Monday after a heart attack, hospital director Luis Fernando Rendon said. She survived for about 10 hours on life support, but then seemingly didn’t respond to resuscitation efforts following a second attack. She was declared dead early Tuesday by mistake.
