The funeral of Muhammad Furqan in Lucknow, India took an unexpected turn while mourning family members noticed something peculiar
After being sent to the Ram Manohar Lohia hospital, it was discovered that "the patient is in critical condition but definitely not brain dead"
"He has a pulse, blood pressure, and his reflexes are working," chief medical officer in Lucknow Narendra Agarwal revealed.
He has been put on ventilator support.
Furqan, who has been unconscious since an accident on 21 June, was pronounced dead by doctors when his family revealed that they were running low on funds
"We had paid INR700,000 (RM41,507) to the private hospital earlier and when we told them that we had run out of money, they had declared Furqan dead," Narendra said.
He was then sent home in an ambulance on 1 July.
The chief medical officer said that the unexpected incident will be thoroughly probed.
