A woman declared dead following surgery woke up in a morgue, and then actually died shortly after. 

According to the Daily Mail, an 81-year-old Russian woman underwent surgery to remove an intestinal blockage and was declared dead following the procedure last week. She was taken to a morgue at 1 a.m. and woke up sometime that night.
