Prisoner pronounced dead wakes up and starts WHEEZING as doctor prepares to cut him open for post-mortem

A PRISONER who was pronounced dead woke up and started wheezing as doctors prepared to cut him open for an autopsy.

Gonzalo Montoya Jimenez was mistakenly bagged up and taken to the Institute of legal Medicine in Oviedo on Sunday morning, after police guards found him slumped and unconscious.

He is understood to have fell ill at Asturias Central Penitentiary in Villabona, the day before his dramatic 'death' and 'resurrection'.

A spokesman for the Spanish Prison Service confirmed the man’s family had been informed he had ‘passed away’ as part of standard procedure which kicks in when a prisoner has been declared dead.

She said: "Two prison doctors concluded he had clinical signs of death following a morning roll call and informed police, his next-of-kin and a local duty court as part of standard procedure.

"The court sent a forensic doctor who was the one who actually confirmed his death.

"I can’t comment on what happened at the Institute of Legal Medicine but three doctors have seen clinical signs of death so it’s still not clear at the moment exactly why this occurred."

Civil Guard officers answering to bosses in the northern port city of Gijon have been tasked with keeping watch on the prisoner while he is treated in hospital.

A police source said: “We got the original call asking us to attend the jail because an inmate had died and acted according to protocol.

"He was taken away for an autopsy without police presence because at that point he was thought to be dead.

"The second call that came in asking for police assistance in taking him to hospital and keeping watch over him while he was there for obvious security reasons obviously came as a bit of a surprise."

A hospital spokesman confirmed the patient was in intensive care but said he couldn’t comment on his condition, although a well-placed source said his life was not thought to be in danger now he was being cared for in the proper place.

Relatives have been visiting him in hospital and are said to be feeling a mix of relief and indignation, although none of them have yet made any public comment.

It was not immediately clear on Monday morning why the inmate was in prison or what length of sentence he was serving.
