Losing a loved one is hard enough as it is but imagine the roller-coaster of emotions that comes with bidding farewell to a family member or friend twice.

This was the bizarre and painful reality for the relatives of a Russian woman. 

According to Mail Online the unnamed 62-year-old had been drinking with relatives at a party in Vasilyevka, a village in Azerbaijan, when it appeared she had died.

Bystanders called the police, who later confirmed the woman had died.

But while a female mortuary worker fixed a number tag to the foot of the “corpse”, the woman started moving, The Metro reports.

“The woman came to life,” the worker told local reporters.

She immediately called an ambulance and paramedics resuscitated the woman after 40 minutes.  Chief doctor Mikhail Danilov said the patient suffered from “extreme cold”.

The woman was admitted to the intensive care unit of Belogorsk hospital, where she died of hypothermia later on the same day, Mirror Online writes.

Medics later revealed if the woman had received prompt medical care instead of being taken to the mortuary, she could have survived.

Police and other law enforcement agencies are conducting an investigation into her death.
