Panic after “corpse’ comes back to life

BANGKOK (AFP): A Thai man sparked panic when his body twitched as it was loaded into cold storage a day after he was pronounced dead, forensic experts said today. Aroon Chansawan, 75, collapsed at a nursing home near Bangkok late Tuesday and was declared dead after police officials failed to detect a pulse. His body was taken for an autopsy the following day, but as it was being put into a refrigerated mortuary, a policeman detected a movement in the corpse’s abdomen. When officers at the Institute of Forensic Medicine recovered from the shock, Aroon was rushed to hospital, said institute officials who asked not to be named. Doctors at the Police General Hospital refused to comment on his condition this afternoon.
