Gladys Rodríguez Duarte was shocked to find herself in a body bag after being declared dead by a doctor.
The 46-year-old Paraguayan woman had gone to San Fernando Clinic, in the city of Coronel Oviedo, because her already high blood pressure was increasing, Mirror reports.
Legit.ng gathers that Doctor Heriberto Vera examined Gladys and thereafter declared to her husband and daughter that she had died.
Rodríguez's husband Maximino said: "He (Dr Vera) assumed she was dead and handed her naked to me like an animal with her death certificate. He didn’t even revive her.
"We trusted him, that’s why we went there. But they disconnected her and passed her off to the funeral home."
It was at the funeral home that Gladys was found to be alive after staff saw her moving inside a body bag when she was unloaded.
