A prisoner was declared dead by three doctors, only to wake up alive while inside a body bag in a hospital mortuary.

Gonzalo Montoya Jimenez , 29 years-old, woke up just as he was about to be autopsied with scalpel marks already in his stomach.

Authorities already informed his relatives of his death, after he was found allegedly lifeless inside his cell. He had been complaining of feeling ill the day before. Prison doctors allegedly found in cyanotic, with purple discoloration in his skin, he also appeared to be in rigor mortis. They couldn’t find his pulse, so he was declared dead.

“Forensic doctors began to hear noises coming from inside the bag. Montoya was not dead. Quite the opposite,” according to reports.

The forensic pathologist proceeded to open the bag and found the inmate still alive.”

Jimenez’s family is furious as to why this has happened, and blamed prison officials for their carelessness.

“I can’t comment on what happened at the Institute of Legal Medicine but three doctors have seen clinical signs of death so it’s still not clear at the moment exactly why this occurred,” said the spokesman if the prison.

An investigation is currently being conducted.
