Doctors are considered to be lifesavers, but in recent times, there have been many incidents that prove people pursue this profession just for the money and have no value of human life. Medical negligence has become very common, and a lot of people lose their lives due to this. In a recent case of medical negligence, doctors mistakenly declared a woman dead.
A Brazilian woman named Rosangela Almeida dos Santos was brought to the hospital after she suffered severe fatigue. After a week of treatment, doctors declared her dead and handed her body to her family. Her birth certificate said that she suffered a cardiac arrest before dying from septic shock on 28th January.
She was buried next day. A living soul inside a coffin was buried inside a tomb! When she regained consciousness, she cried for help. Some people living near the cemetery heard muffled screams coming out of her grave 11 days after her burial. They immediately informed the family, but by the time they dug the coffin out and opened it, it was too late – she was already dead.
The state of coffin clearly showed her desperate attempts to come out of it. The nails around the coffin lid had been pushed upwards, and there were a lot of scratches inside. The blood and injuries on her head and fingers showed that she banged her head on coffin, and tried to claw her way out.
A video of the incident has been surfaced. In the video, people can be seen screaming for ambulance. To everyone’s shock, the body was still warm when the coffin was finally opened.
Here’s the video:
Natalina Silva, a close resident of the surrounding area of cemetery said that she heard Rosangela’s groans through the grave. She said:
“When i got there right in front of the tomb, i heard banging from inside it. I thought the kids who play around the cemetery were playing a joke on me. Then i heard her groan twice, and after those two groans, she stopped.”
The family is however not accusing any doctors as they don’t want any more problems. The police are further investigating the incident and the hospital that declared her dead is also cooperating in the investment.
