Declared dead, man comes back to life on autopsy table

Asturias Prison

A relative of Montoya told local news site La Voz de Asturias that his body had already been marked in preparation for an autopsy.

Jiménez awoke just hours before the post-mortem was due to begin, in what scientists are calling "an exceptional case of apparent death".

The man, 29-year-old Gonzalo Montoya Jiménez, was a prisoner at a jail in northern Spain. He was placed in the most risky section of the prison population.

The 29-year-old inmate was found slumped in his cell after complaining he felt ill.

Officials said he was cyanotic - the purplish discolouration in skin that appears after death - but after he was placed in a body bag he was "resurrected" on the autopsy table after doctors saw the "corpse move" and heard him "snoring" around noon. Despite signs to revive him, he was declared dead. "Quite the opposite", reported El Espanol.

A forensic doctor then came to the prison hour later to certify what happened and, after examining the man, agreed with the first two evaluations and issued a third death report.

"The forensic [pathologist] proceeded to open the bag and found the inmate still alive". This included putting marks over his body, which are used to guide the coroner.

Telecinco report that it is believed that a case of catalepsy is responsible for the man almost being killed by the coroner.

He failed to show for the prison's morning count in the most risky section of the prison and appeared to be suffering from rigor mortis, having no pulse when found. Hospital sources believe he may have catalepsy, a condition in which a person's vital signs become so weak, they're barely detectable.

He has now regained consciousness and is in the intensive care unit (ICU) at the Central University Hospital of Asturias (HUCA) in Oviedo, Spain.
