Dead Indian man wakes up during autopsy

An Indian man declared dead surprised hospital staff by waking up during his autopsy.

Doctors were performing a post-mortem examination on Manas Deo on Monday after he had been hit by a car, the Orissa Sambad newspaper reports.

Deo was critically injured Christmas day by a vehicle near Jajpur's Baragadia village on the east coast of India.

Police transported the man to a local hospital where the doctor pronounced him dead.

Prematurely, it turns out.

"It was a surprise for the hospital staff and family members after Manas woke up when the doctors began his autopsy," the paper reported.

After waking up, Deos was taken to a hospital in the nearby city of Cuttack for treatment. He is presently recovering and will reportedly be released in a week or two.  This is not the first time someone has woken up after being declared dead.

In 2007, a Venezuelan man named Carlos Camejo was taken to the morgue, also following a car accident. When doctors began cutting the victim's face, they were shocked to see him start bleeding and quickly stitched him back up.

His wife reportedly arrived at the morgue to identify the body - only to find him alive.
