Workers at a Detroit funeral home discovered a 20-year-old woman breathing hours after she was declared dead by paramedics and was sent to the mortuary by her grieving family, authorities said.

The woman, whose name has not been released, was found alive on Sunday at the James H. Cole Funeral Home and taken to a hospital, authorities said.

"While it is our practice not to comment on open investigations, we can confirm that on Sunday, August 23, 2020, we received a call to pick up a Southfield woman who was deceased," the mortuary said in a statement to ABC News on Monday. "Upon her arrival at the funeral home, our staff confirmed she was breathing and called EMS."
The woman was declared dead after paramedics responded to a home in the Detroit suburb of Southfield around 7:34 a.m. on Sunday on a call of an unresponsive female, Chief Johnny L. Menifee of the Southfield Fire Department said in a statement.

Menifee said the woman was not breathing when paramedics arrived at her home.


"The paramedics performed CPR and other life-reviving methods for 30 minutes," Menifee said. "Given medical readings and the condition of the patient, it was determined at that time that she did not have signs of life."

In a second statement released on Monday, the fire department clarified that a local emergency department physician pronounced the woman dead based upon medical information provided by the Southfield Fire Department paramedics. The earlier statement from the Menifee inaccurately claimed the Oakland Medical Examiner's Office pronounced the woman dead.

Since there was no foul play involved, the Southfield Police Department notified the Oakland County Medical Examiner's Office of the findings and an on-duty forensic pathologist at the coroner's office released the body to the woman's family to make arrangements to have the body picked up by a funeral home of their choosing.

The Southfield Fire and Police Departments followed all appropriate city, county and state protocols and procedures in this case," according to the statement, adding that the city of Southfield is conducting an internal investigation along with the Oakland County Medical Control Authority and that the findings of the probe will be turned over to the Michigan Bureau of EMS, Trauma and Preparedness.
Staff at the James H. Cole Funeral home contacted the Detroit Fire Department after they took the woman to the funeral home and noticed she was alive, Dave Fornell, deputy commissioner of the Detroit Fire Department, told ABC News.

Fornell said the call the fire department received from the funeral home was for a person having difficulty breathing and that an emergency medical services crew didn't know the full story until they arrived.
They did the normal medical interventions and that's when the funeral home told them that she was to be embalmed and all that. It kind of surprised us. We couldn't believe it," Fornell said.

He said the woman was taken to Sinai-Grace Hospital in Detroit. Hospital officials declined to release information on her.β€œI talked to our medical people and they said she was breathing, she had a decent heart rate, she had decent blood-oxygen," Fornell said. "But she was definitely alive when we got here there."

How can she be getting buried within hours of being declared dead?
I thinks her family wanted rid. She must be a horrible fucker.

Imagine she woke up in a coffin underground, or even worse getting cremated!?? Not cool Dr. Not cool.

Close the window, it's getting whiney in here
Its shocking, but it actually happens fairly often. It is why the first thing the mortician does is check the vital signs. The mortician can't embalm, bury or cremate the body until they have a signed death certificate and order of disposition which can only be signed by a corner, M.E. or judge. Most families don't have a burial plot or crypt lined up unless the person is at an advanced age anyway.

I know that they used to have a bell outside of the coffin attached to the corpses finger. So if not dead they'd ring the bell and hopefully get saved. There's a name for that which we still used. Saved by the bell maybe it fits. Not sure if that's it but there is one. For whom the bell tolls? I divnt nars.

The term you are searching for is dead ringer. It also is where the term graveyard shift comes from, the poor fucker who had to sit out there and listen for bells to ring

Thankyou.
Any idea what saved by the bell is? Apart from a TV show with screech. (screech had a storage unit on the TV show 'storage Hunters and in it was a rubber expensive sex doll, a nazi uniform and hat and a crystal meth pipe. So screech was a sick individual)

That’s the kind of miracle that every family hopes for when your loved one has an appointment with the Embalmer.

Saved by the bell comes from boxing, if the bell rang before the count was complete, he was "saved by the bell". (I think).
