Morgue surprise

(Newser) – A 72-year-old car crash victim had been in a German morgue for several hours Monday when a worker there noticed something odd: She was still breathing. The woman was injured when her 18-year-old grandson veered into oncoming traffic on a highway about 35 miles north of Hamburg. The resulting crash killed the woman’s daughter, who had been in the back with her four sons, the youngest of whom also died; paramedics believed the grandmother had suffered the same fate. Unable to find any signs of life, they assumed she’d died of head trauma, the Local reports.

“What exactly happened next, no one knows,” says a hospital spokesperson. When the morgue worker realized they were wrong, the woman was rushed to the hospital, where she was operated on for four hours. She is currently in a coma. (This is, of course, not the first time this has happened. See here, here, and here.)
