A man named Himanshu Bharadwaj was in a horrific car accident.
After arriving at a local hospital, his condition quickly began to worsen and he was rushed to a private hospital.
Before long, Bharadwaj’s brain activity stopped, and there was no sign of a pulse.
“The man was declared brain-dead and upon his arrival at Chhindwara hospital his respiration was dysfunctional and the pulse was also missing,” a doctor at the hospital said.
Not long after that, he was declared dead by hospital staff.
His body was returned to the Chhindwara District Hospital and was sent in that evening for an autopsy. The following morning, however, doctors were in for the shock of a lifetime.
Just as the pathologist was about to perform the autopsy, he noticed signs of breathing. Then he found Bharadwaj’s pulse.
“However, his respiratory organs began responding this morning,” the doctor said.
The patient was immediately rushed back into the hospital to receive treatment for the time he’d been thought to be dead.
Bharadwaj’s family considers his “coming back to life” a true miracle. Sadly, his car accident was serious, and while he is alive, he is still brain-dead.
He has since been transferred to a hospital that can better attend to his needs.
You may be wondering just how a supposed dead man suddenly came back to life after an entire night of being “dead.”
Bharadwaj’s doctor explained that on occasion, brain-dead patients breathing and pulse can stop intermittently, meaning if he was assessed at just the right time, he would have shown no signs of life.
“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,” the doctor said.
Crowds have since gathered outside of the hospital in protest of the supposed negligence. However, Bharadwaj’s family is undoubtedly grateful that he is simply alive.
