Woman Found Alive at Funeral Home after Being Pronounced Dead by Paramedics
Authorities in Detroit say a young woman was declared dead before employees at a funeral home realized she was still alive.
The Southfield Fire Department responded to a call about an unresponsive female. After 30 minutes of CPR, paramedics concluded she was dead.
There was no indication of foul play, so the Medical Examiner’s Office was contacted and the body was released directly to the family to make arrangements.
A local funeral was contacted to pick up the body, and did so after getting clearance from the medical examiner.
Staff at the funeral home then discovered the woman was still breathing.
She was quickly taken to the hospital, but no word on her condition.
