A 27-year-old man declared brain dead after an accident was responding to treatment and his vitals were normal a day after he was rushed to another hospital when a doctor deputed to conduct his postmortem noticed goosebumps and movement of his hands when he touched him.

A private hospital declared Shankar Gombi brain dead after keeping him under two-day observation and asked his family to take his body after he met with an accident. The body was sent to a government hospital for post-mortem as the family prepared for Gombi’s funeral.

SS Galgali, the doctor assigned to perform the post-mortem. “I did not expect he would be alive,” Galgali said. He found the patient was still on a ventilator. Gombi’s family told that the doctors at the private hospital told them he will stop breathing once the ventilator support was removed.

Gombi's family had been told that once the ventilator is removed, he will be officially dead. Galgali: "To my surprise, he moved his hands. I immediately called the family and shifted him to another private hospital" "His friends had posted the news of the death on social media and as I reached the hospital, at least 1,000 people had gathered there"

Galgali said he was told that Gombi was showing some improvement and his vitals are normal. “I am told there is a chance of his survival and he responding to treatment,” he said. “I have done more than 400 post-mortems in my 18-year-old career but never seen a case like that.”
