Indian man rescued from a freezer dies

Dem cari am go anoda hospital but im die on Friday.

A 74-year-old man was rescued by police after being loaded into a freezer overnight and assumed dead in India's Tamil Nadu on October 13.

Balasubramaniam Kumar, 74, was kept in a freezer box for 20 hours when undertakers came to collect the body for the funeral and found that he was still moving and gasping for air.

The dean of the government hospital in the southern city of Salem, Dr Balajinathan, told BBC Tamil that the patient had been admitted in a drowsy condition and died of lung-related problems. The duty doctor there allegedly asked Saravanan to take the patient back home and issued a death certificate.

They have been booked under Indian Penal Code Section 287 for negligent conduct to endanger human life and Section 336 for an act of endangering life or personal safety of others, according to The Independent. A case of negligence has been registered against the family.

Police were called and are now investigating the family for not carrying out a proper medical check before declaring Mr Kumar dead. Dr. Malarvizhi Vallal, Joint Director from Health Services, has started an investigation against Salem's private hospital issuing the death certificate before the death.

Oga Balasubramanyam bin live wit im wife, two daughters and im broda.

On Tuesday, the undertakers who arrived to collect the "body" found him alive and shivering in the freezer. Nevertheless, his relatives called the police, who rescued Kumar from his frozen entrapment on Tuesday.

Di funeral company say oga Balasubramanyam broda bin tell dem say im get "signed letter from doctor about im death".

It is unclear whether the private hospital where he was supposedly declared dead is being investigated; nor is it clear how Balasubramanyam survived for nearly 24 hours in the freezer box.
