80-Yr-Old American Woman Was Frozen Alive In Morgue


A 80-year-old American woman was frozen alive in morgue trying to get out of the body bag after having been prematurely declared dead.
Although a lower-court judge had dismissed a lawsuit by Maria de Jesus Arroy’s family against the hospital in May 2012, an appeals court ruled this week the relatives could pursue a new claim after the shocking details have been discovered.
The elderly woman was said to be lying face down in a body bag half-unzipped, with her nose broken and face all bruised, when her remains were taken from the hospital morgue by the employees of a funeral home.
The victim's relatives, who had seen Arroyo’s face without injuries just after she was pronounced dead, alleged her corpse had been mishandled by hospital morgue workers.
However, this case took a new turn as a pathologist claimed she eventually regained consciousness and "damaged her face and turned herself face down as she struggled unsuccessfully to escape her frozen tomb".
The White Memorial Hospital in Los Angeles, which is facing the accusations of malpractice and wrongful death, denies the claims.
