Man 'Wakes Up Inside Mortuary After Being Declared Dead By Three Doctors'

Shortly afterward, he was pronounced dead by three doctors at the prison, having found no signs of life.

According to, Gonzalo Montoya was found inside his cell at the penitentiary centre in Asturias and was completely out of it.

"Forensic doctors began to hear noises coming from inside the bag".

According to El Español, Jiménez was subsequently transferred under guard in an ambulance to another hospital where he regained consciousness after 24 hours.

An official investigation has been launched to find out how the man's vitals were not discovered or if any medical steps were not carried out correctly.

The morgue had marked Gonzalo Montoya Jiménez ready for autopsy. The body was then reportedly examined by three doctors before being sent to the mortuary, BBC Newsreported.

"The second call that came in asking for police assistance in taking him to hospital and keeping watch over him while he was there for obvious security reasons obviously came as a bit of a surprise", a police source said. A Spanish Prison Service spokesman was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying that they had no idea how Montoya was still alive after three physicians confirmed his death.

It is not known what caused his vital signs to slow to the point at which he was believed dead.

A person's limbs "tend to remain in whatever position they are placed", NCBI says, which can be mistaken for rigormortis - the third stage of death.

Catalepsy is itself a symptom of epilepsy, which La Voz de Asturias reports Jiménez suffers from, so it would make sense if this turns out to be the case.

The first words he muttered were about his wife, and asked if he could see her. Doctors said his brain was deprived of oxygen for a while, but he is able to speak and remember things, which are both good signs.
