KHAMMAM/HYDERABAD:A person, who was allegedly declared dead by Gandhi Hospital, ‘sprung back’ to life on his way back to his village in Khammam district. Doctors at Gandhi hospital, however, denied that they declared him dead.

Initially, he was shifted to Kothagudem and then to another hospital in Khammam but on the advice of the doctors there, he was shifted to Gandhi Hospital.

“No one attended to Bikku and there was not a single doctor to even administer an injection,’’ they said.

On September 2, a doctor told Bikku’s relatives that the patient succumbed to injuries.

The family members reached Bikku’s sister’s house at Gopalapuram with the ‘dead body’ in an ambulance. Some relatives to their shock noticed that Bikku was responding to their touches and they immediately shifted him to a hospital in Kothagudem.

“Bikku is now able to speak and identify everyone,’’ doctors said. Local MLA Jalagam Venkata Rao informed health minister C Laxma Reddy who ordered enquiry. Gandhi Hospital superintendent JV Reddy, however, said the doctors did not declare the patient dead.

“ACT scan was performed which showed the patient had injuries in brain (bleeding),” Reddy explained.
