In a bizarre incident, a 54-year-old woman left in shock after knowing that her dead mother was still alive. Interestingly, she came to know just a few seconds before her mother was going to be cremated.
The 89-year-old unnamed woman was admitted to a private hospital in Resistencia, a city in northeast Argentina after she complained of chest pain on Saturday.
The woman died in hospital and doctors on Sunday gave a death certificate to her daughter. According to the death certificate, the woman died after suffering a heart attack.
After an 89-year-old woman’s demise, her daughter started preparations for her mother’s funeral. When the funeral workers were preparing to pass the elderly woman through the conveyor belt at a crematorium, her daughter noticed some vital movements in her ‘dead’ mother, and then, she immediately stopped the cremation ceremony.
"The daughter went to the sanatorium at 8.45 am where she met with a doctor who told her about the death of her mother after suffering cardiorespiratory arrest, for which she was sent to the crematorium on Velez Sarsfield Avenue and hired the funeral and cremation service," the Daily Mail quoted the local police as saying.
The daughter later informed one of her relatives about her mother via an audio message.
"I just wanted to let you know that mum is still alive. In the end, we were in the cremation room and we saw her with her vital signs. Now we're going to the clinic," the woman said in the audio.
The 89-year-old woman was immediately taken to a hospital where she was being treated in intensive care.
The matter was brought to the notice of the local authorities and further investigation will be carried out about the private clinic.
