Spanish prison authorities are baffled after a prisoner who was declared dead by three separate doctors woke up in the morgue – just hours before his own autopsy was set to commence.

The prisoner, 29-year-old Gonzalo Montoya Jiménez, was found unresponsive in his cell during a morning roll call, and had been transferred to a hospital mortuary in a body bag when pathologists heard something strange.

Snoring. Coming from inside the bag.

Jiménez, who was serving time for robbery in the maximum security wing of Asturias Central Penitentiary in north-west Spain, was first attended by two doctors on duty in the prison, after he was found sitting unconscious in a chair in his cell, with no signs of violence being evident.

Sensing no vital signs, the doctors declared him dead, and an hour later a forensic doctor inspected the body, concurred with the first evaluations, and issued a third death report.

Only later in the morgue did physicians realise something was terribly wrong.

Was this just sloppiness of the doctors or was the guy in some special state where it's hard to observe life signs?

I've often heard anecdotes of sloppy doctors who, say, missed a knife sticking in the back of a dead person when they performed an autopsy.

That is what I was thinking. I have hear of stories of people who fell into freezing water, and seemed dead but came back to life. Their body slowed down so much due to the cold that they seemed dead.

But this guy was in prison, so i do not think this was the case.

It will be interesting to find out what may have caused his "death". Maybe it was just bad doctoring.
