Boy declared dead wakes up in mortuary, doctor suspended

Monday November 07, 2011 06:39:50 PM, IANS

Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government Monday suspended a doctor in a case of medical negligence in which a teenager declared dead by him regained consciousness in a mortuary in Muzaffarnagar district.

Radhey, 17, woke up in the mortuary at the Muzaffarnagar district hospital Sunday, nearly 10 hours after the doctor, Pradeep Mittal, declared him dead, an official said.

The victim was brought to hospital from a forested area where he was found in an unconscious state Saturday, police said.

Mittal declared Radhey dead Sunday morning and directed the ward boys to shift "the body" to the mortuary.

"When police officials along with the hospital staff were about to begin the formalities of the post-mortem, the youth regained consciousness," Chief Medical Officer Anand Swaroop told reporters in Muzaffarnagar, some 300 km from Lucknow.

"When the state health authorities came to know about the incident, an inquiry was ordered. On the recommendations of a panel constituted to probe the incident, Pradeep Mittal was Monday placed under suspension," he added.

Radhey, who hails from Agra, worked as a labourer in a village in Muzaffarnagar, police said.

"We have been told that the youth has been suffering from seizures," police inspector Pawan Chaudhary told reporters.
