40-year-old Rathnam was suffering from jaundice. She was undergoing treatment at a hospital in Madurai for the last two months. During treatment, Rathnam’s internal organs failed and incurred permanent damage due to the severity of her illness.
What is death? Mark Twain said, “The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.” While Willaim Shakespeare said, “Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.” Every individual has a different definition for death and you might have your own. However, a recent incident that happened in Kerala might change your perception towards it. According to a report by The News Minutes, a woman from Kerala who was kept in a mortuary for almost an hour in Kerala’s Idukki district came back to life, leaving everyone around shocked.
40-year-old Rathnam was suffering from jaundice. She was undergoing treatment at a hospital in Madurai for the last two months. During treatment, Rathnam’s internal organs failed and incurred permanent damage due to the severity of her illness. After a point, the doctors gave up on the woman and asked her relatives to take her home as it was pointless to keep her at the hospital because she wasn’t recovering.
The family members took Rathnam home in an ambulance and on the way, presumed that she was dead as there was no movement in the body. The 40-year-old was then taken to a mortuary. However, after almost 60 minutes, the woman started breathing and showed some body movement as well.
The relatives noticed it and immediately shifted Rathnam to a private hospital in Kattappana village and informed the police, according to The News Minute. The police said that the family members did not get a confirmation from the doctor or the hospital about her death before shifting her to a mortuary.
This is not the first time when an incident of this type has been reported. Earlier this year, a teenager in Kerala who was bitten by a stray dog and was assumed to be dead, woke up on the way to his funeral.
