May 17, 2021

Pune: Though the country continues its fierce battle against covid-19, a bizarre incident from Baramati, in Pune district has shocked the relatives and residents of the city, when a 78-year-old Covid-positive woman from Mudhale village of Baramati taluk, who was thought to be dead regained her consciousness minutes before her cremation.

According to reports, the elderly woman had tested positive for COVID a couple of days back following which she was in home isolation. She later developed severe symptoms owing to her age and on May 10, her family took her to a hospital in an ambulance. As her family members struggled to secure a bed, the elderly lady fell unconscious inside the ambulance.

The ambulance staff reportedly confirmed the woman’s death and the family members even informed their relatives about the incident. The ‘deceased’ was then taken back to the village, where the family started preparing for her cremation and last rites.

But minutes before she was consigned to flames, the woman opened her eyes and started crying. She was immediately shifted to the Silver Jubilee Hospital in Baramati for further treatment.
