A RUSSIAN grandmother has been brought back from the dead twice – and was just minutes away from being cut open for her autopsy.
In a bizarre case that has left her family traumatised, Lyudmila Steblitskaya was left to lie in a freezing cold morgue for three days, while her relatives mourned her, the Daily Mail reports.
Amazingly, her recent near-death experience was not the first time the 61-year-old ad been wrongly declared dead.
The Siberian Times said the initial problems began when Lyudmila spent several days in Tomsk Regional Clinical Hospital in October this year after feeling unwell.
When her daughter Anastasia called to ask about her mother’s condition, doctors told her that her mother had died.

The devastated 29-year-old, who began planning her mother’s funeral, went to the hospital to collect her body – only to be told to wait as doctors had not performed an autopsy.
Anastasia told The Siberian Times a shocked doctor told her that her mother was not dead, but was actually in her bed breathing and alive.
She screamed and ran to her mother’s room, yelling her name.
“My head was so fuzzy that I didn’t even think about getting back into the room, and hugging mum. Or asking her about what happened,” she told The Siberian Times.
“Instead I started calling everyone, saying things like ‘Er, sorry. Can you please stop digging the grave. Ah, is it done? OK… well, there won’t be a funeral, my mother is alive'”.
Her mother cannot remember what happened, only that she was in hospital on the Friday and then woke up in a morgue on Monday to discover that her skin was peeling off from the cold, the Daily Mail reported.
Bizarrely, the horrific incident was not Lyudmila’s first near-death experience. In October this year she was declared dead during a hospital stay but this time doctors brought her back to life after several hours.
On the morgue incident, chief doctor of Tomsk Regional Clinical Hospital Maksim Zayukov, told The Siberian Times: “As of now I cannot explain why this mistake happened.
“This sad procedure has always worked in our hospital like clockwork: the moment of death is always registered by the intensive care doctor.
“Proper checks are always conducted. This all happens before the family are informed about the death’.
