DETROIT (AP) — A young woman who was declared dead at her suburban Detroit home opened her eyes at a funeral home as she was about to embalmed, a lawyer said Monday.
“They would have begun draining her blood to be very, very frank about it,” Geoffrey Fieger told WXYZ-TV.
The Southfield fire department acknowledged it was involved in a bizarre set of events Sunday that began when a medical crew was summoned to a home where a 20-year-old woman was unresponsive.
Paramedics tried to revive the woman for 30 minutes and consulted an emergency room doctor, the department said.
The doctor “pronounced the patient deceased based upon medical information provided” from the scene, the department said.
