A man who suffered a heart attack following a vodka binge woke up in the mortuary – after he was pronounced DEAD in his unconscious state.
That’s the report coming from Polish news sources this week, concerning a 25-year-old from southwest of Wroclaw.
The man, named only as Kamil, was reportedly pronounced dead from cardiac arrest – but when he came to and found himself in the morgue, he apparently went back to the pub in the small town of Kamienna Gora.
The reports say that he had been at a tavern and felt ill, so he went outside, where he collapsed.
He stayed unconscious through attempts at the scene and, later, at the hospital to revive him, until he was pronounced dead.
A guard reportedly heard sounds from the mortuary on the same day, the reports reveal, and found the unfortunate drinker inside a fridge.
The guard is quoted as saying: “I was sure it was a burglary, young people sometimes break into the morgue, but the sounds came from the refrigerators.
“With shaking hands, I opened one of the doors, and there I found a naked corpse, who asked me for a blanket.”
Having risen from the dead, Kamil was given a check-up, then his belongings were returned and he went home – via the pub.
A story with similar details was revealed in the Russian press this time last year.
A man who ‘died’ after downing shots of vodka with friends last December was taken to the morgue before waking up in a freezer in Khasanky, in Russia’s far east , according to those reports .
