KARACHI: A woman pronounced dead at the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital 'miraculously' came back to life while being given her funeral bath on Wednesday.

According to the woman's family, 50-year-old Rasheeda Bibi was shifted to the public hospital, where doctors not only pronounced her dead but also issued a death certificate.

"Her body had been shifted to the morgue and we had started giving her a funeral bath," her daughter-in-law Shabana told The Express Tribune.

She said a woman who was present in the room noticed Rasheeda's limbs moving, adding that, "We then hurriedly checked her pulse to find out that she was still breathing."

Shabana said the woman had been covered in the funeral shroud by the time she was found alive.

Rasheeda has again been shifted to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital.

Back in 2015, a pregnant woman, Manzoora Bibi, who was being prepared for burial at an Edhi mortuary had suddenly sat up and started reciting the Kalma.
