A man who was wrongly pronounced dead after a car crash in India narrowly avoided being cut up in a morgue when doctors realised he was still alive.

Himanshu Bharadwaj’s family has claimed a miracle after the pathologist at a hospital in Nagpur detected a pulse just as he was picking up a blade to perform an autopsy.

The patient was resuscitated and rushed to a separate ward in the hospital after the error was realised. 

Meanwhile a large crowd gathered outside to protest against the perceived negligence, News18 reports. 

Bharadwaj was seriously hurt in a car accident yesterday, after which he was sent to hospital. 

His condition worsened and he was declared brain dead – and then medically dead – before being sent for autopsy. 

He was resuscitated and rushed to a separate ward in the hospital after the error was realised. Pictured: Bharadwaj in hospital 

Dr Gedam, of Chhindwara District Hospital, said the patient’s ‘respiration was dysfunctional’ and his ‘pulse was also missing’. 

He added: ‘However, his respiratory organs began responding this morning.

‘At times, in brain dead patients, the heart and the respiratory system stop functioning transiently, which seems to be the case here.

‘Himanshu is still brain dead. Thus, we have referred him to Nagpur due to lack of sufficient facilities locally.’ 

According to the Daily Bhaskar, the man was kept in the mortuary overnight.  

The paper reports that he grabbed a sweeper as a means of showing he was still alive. 

Bharadwaj’s father is said to be a Bank of India manager.
