“Dead” 91-Year-Old Polish Woman Wakes up in Morgue, Asks for Tea

The doctor said she checked for a pulse on the woman’s forearm and neck arteries, listened for a heartbeat and the sound of breathing, and checked the pupils for reaction to light, but found none.

A Polish doctor says she has been in “deep shock” since learning that a 91-year-old woman she pronounced dead woke up in a morgue several hours later.
The doctor — identified in the media as Wieslawa C. — said on TVN24 television Friday that she was sure the patient was dead after finding “no basic life functions” during a morning house call on Nov. 6.

They also are urging a regional court to void the death certificate that local authorities issued, which discontinued Kolkiewicz’s benefits such as her pension.

“In the legal sense, the woman is dead, but in reality she is clearly alive,” Syk-Jankowska said.

She said Kolkiewicz has required no hospitalization since being removed from the morgue and is now in good health.
