20-year-old Mohammad Furqan’s grave was dug, when some of his family members noticed some movement in his body. The family rushed him to the hospital where he has been put on a ventilator.

On Monday, he was declared dead in a private hospital of Lucknow where he was admitted after he met with an accident.

“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,” said Furqan’s brother Mohammad Irfan.

“We had paid Rs 7 lakh to private hospital earlier and when we told them that we had run out of money, they had declared Furqan dead on Monday,” he further added.

However, the doctor who is treating Furqan said that he is in a critical condition. Definitely, he is not brain dead as his blood pressure, pulse and reflexes are working.

Lucknow CMO (Chief Medical Officer) Narendra Agarwal said, “We have taken the incident to our notice and the matter will be thoroughly probed.”
