Another woman who had been pronounced dead was found breathing at a funeral home, this time in New York
The 82-year-old woman was pronounced dead around 11:15 a.m. and was taken to the OB Davis Funeral Home on Miller Place about two hours later.
Officials said she was still breathing around 2:09 p.m. She was taken to a nearby hospital, but her condition has not been released for privacy reasons.
“Out of respect for the privacy and confidentiality of the families we are honored to serve, we are unable to comment further on this matter.” called a spokesman for OB Davis Funeral Home told WPIX-TV.
The prosecutor is investigating the incident.
A similar case was reported in January by the Glen Oaks Alzheimer’s Special Care Center in Urbandale, Iowa. A woman was pronounced dead by a registered nurse and taken to a funeral home. A funeral home worker said they felt movement from a woman who had been placed in a cloth body bag, and then she gasped.
Rescue workers were able to detect a heartbeat, but the woman was unresponsive and had no eye movement.
This woman was hospitalized and died two days later surrounded by her family. The center was fined $10,000 for two violations related to the troubling incident.
