A Polish woman declared dead by her GP came back to life complaining of the cold – after spending 11 hours in a morgue.

Janina Kolkiewicz, 91, was declared dead after an examination by the family doctor at her home in Otrow Lubelski.

However, morgue staff were later astonished to notice movement in her body bag while it was in cold storage. The police have launched an investigation.

Back home, Ms Kolkiewicz’s family warmed her up with a bowl of soup and two pancakes.

Her family and doctor said they were in shock, according to the website of the Polish newspaper, Dziennik Wschodni.

The woman’s niece called the doctor after coming home one morning to find her aunt did not seem to be breathing or to have a pulse.

After examining the woman, the family doctor declared her dead and wrote out her death certificate.

“I was sure she was dead,” Dr Wieslawa Czyz told the television channel TVP.

“I’m stunned, I don’t understand what happened. Her heart had stopped beating, she was no longer breathing.”

Ms Kolkiewicz told her relatives she felt “normal, fine” after returning home. She is apparently unaware of how near she came to the grave.
