German morgue notices victim still alive

  • Worker in a German morgue noticed the 72-year old car crash victim who was still breathing after she had been kept inside the morgue for several hours on Monday.

    The victim had been injured after her 18-year old grandson crashed their vehicle on a highway about 35 miles from Hamburg. 

    The car accident had killed her daughter who sat in the back with her four sons. The youngest out of them died as well. Paramedics had found no signs of life in the grandmother and assumed that she had died of head trauma. 

    A hospital spokesperson said no one knows what exactly happened. 

    The woman was transported to a hospital after the worker realized she was alive. She was operated on for four hours and is currently in a coma.
