She was almost cremated alive in Chaco, what is the civil liability?

The daughter went to say goodbye to her mother and when she approached to the drawer she saw that she was breathing, that she was alive within minutes of the body being removed

The 89-year-old woman was admitted to a clinic in Resistencia. Last Saturday, doctors from the Resistencia sanatorium, Chaco, called her 54-year-old daughter and told her that she had died with the diagnosis of a failure in the biliary system.

The death occurred, they informed him, “by virtue of having suffered a cardiorespiratory arrest, for which he went to the crematorium located on Vélez Sarsfield avenue, where he contracted the funeral and cremation service for his mother, establishing the hours of 11 : 00 to 12:00, in facilities located at Ruta Nicolás Avellaneda Km 16,675, ”the newspaper Norte published.

Some doctor issued his daughter the corresponding death certificate. The wake was even held, her daughter approached the drawer to greet her minutes before fulfilling the woman’s desire for cremation. As stated by a police officer, “the girl approached for the last goodbye and saw that her mother was opening her eyes,” published El Ancasti.

Suddenly, then, the woman who believed dead opened her eyes at the astonished gaze of those present at the farewell ceremony.

The reaction after surprise and medical treatment

The daughter of the lady who was about to be cremated sent her relatives an audio on WhatsApp alerting her of the news:

“I know that you’re going to want to talk to me but right now I just wanted to let you know that mom is alive. At the end we were in the cremation room and we saw her with her vital signs. Now we go to the clinic ”.

The situation seems to be from a horror movie: “minutes before entering the crematorium, the daughter of the deceased noticed in time that her mother was breathing and immediately gave notice to the local staff,” newspaper Norte published.

When she learned that her mother was alive and after the moments of surprise, the daughter notified the health authorities and the local police. An ambulance arrived and took her back to the hospital where she is being treated and treated, although she remains in a delicate condition, according to the newspaper El Litoral.

The situation seems to be from a horror movie: “minutes before entering the crematorium, the daughter of the deceased noticed in time that her mother was breathing and immediately gave notice to the local staff,” newspaper Norte published.

Already calmer, the daughter reviewed the death certificate again and was able to verify that “key information was missing, such as the time and the reason for the apparent cause of death,” reported El Litoral.

Civil and criminal liability for the case

The complaint was filed with the First Police Station of the provincial capital, and the Resistance Criminal Investigation Prosecutor’s Office intervenes, according to the newspaper La Nación.

There they should first evaluate the facts of the case, and if the conduct implies having incurred in medical malpractice and falsification of a public instrument, such as the death certificate.

On the other hand, there is civil liability, a duty to compensate, as a result of the medical damage that the patient may have suffered due to having her treatment interrupted. From the events narrated, if verified, a serious negligence and recklessness on the part of the person who issued the certificate and confirmed the death that it was not such is revealed.

There is also a duty to compensate the moral damage and in his psychological case, since apparently, the daughter of the person notified as deceased suffered a very great shock after the traumatic experience, reported Infobae.

Sadly, the woman who was about to be cremated alive in Chaco finally died.
