A 20-year-old man, who was admitted at a private hospital in UP following an accident, was declared dead and he was brought home in an ambulance for the final rites.

Just when the man's grave was dug and his body was about to be buried, his family noticed movement in his body and rushed him to another hospital following a brief moment of shock. He was found to be alive and is currently put on a ventilator. The doctors have announced that his condition is critical, although he is not brain dead yet. "Devastated, we were preparing for the burial when some of us saw movement in his limbs. We immediately took Furqan to the Ram Manohar Lohia hospital where the doctors said he was alive and have put him on ventilator support. We had paid Rs 7 lakh to the private hospital earlier and when we told them that we had run out of money, they had declared Furqan dead on Monday," the man's elder brother stated.

The Lucknow Chief Medical Officer has announced that the matter will be thoroughly probed. "The patient is in critical condition but definitely not brain dead. He has a pulse, blood pressure and his reflexes are working. He has been put on ventilator support," the doctor has stated.
