Miraculous Salvation: Mother Held Off Her Son’s Cremation After Noticing Tears In His Eyes

July 18, 2019 10:24

Even in the 21st century, we have to admit that medical errors still occur. And even though there is modern equipment in medical facilities for diagnosing and maintaining patients’ health, doctors are still human. In the US, medical errors take third place among the causes of death, and this roughly amounts to 250,000 cases annually.

In India, it became known that an 18-year-old boy was nearly cremated alive. The patient was taken to hospital with fever and vomiting; doctors suspected hepatitis. After a while, his condition worsened and he fell into a coma. A week later, the doctors broke the news that the boy’s brain had completely ceased to function. Refusing to disconnect her son from life support, the mother brought him home.

Family and relatives were making preparations for the young man’s cremation when, lo and behold, the mother saw tears in the corners of his eyes! The doctor who arrived soon established that the boy was indeed alive and his heart was beating. He was taken to the hospital again, and 3 days later he regained consciousness, but was understandably very weak.

We have to admit that no one is immune from medical negligence or errors. You should stay vigilant if you have a long and serious course of treatment. Also, pay attention to the following issues:

  • make sure that your doctor is qualified;

  • check and ask for clarifications until you fully understand what procedures and medications you have been prescribed, and what goes in your medical record;

  • read the instructions for prescribed drugs carefully;

  • make sure you know what type of operation you will get and on which organ/s will be worked.
