Idi Amin’s doctor appears to get around a bit.
HANOI (Reuters) – An elderly Vietnamese man thought to have died in a hospital revived after spending the night in the morgue, state media and a doctor said on Friday. Nguyen Van Quan, 73, was declared dead and taken to a Ho Chi Minh City hospital morgue on the night of August 15 but was found alive by his daughter the next morning as she was retrieving the body for the funeral, the Vietnam News daily said.
“I was shocked and frightened when I saw the blanket that covered my father moving,” Quan’s daughter was quoted as saying. “When the morgue’s officials pulled back the blanket, my father’s eyes moved, brightening with joy.”
