A pensioner gave the "shock of a lifetime" to a hospital worker when she returned from the dead after spending the night in a Russian morgue.
Zinaida Kononova, 81, was pronounced dead on August 14 at Gorshechensky Central District Hospital after an operation to remove an obstructed bowel.
She was taken to the morgue at 1:10 a.m., but almost seven hours later at 8:00 a.m., a worker got the shock of her life when she found her grandmother was sprawled on the floor.
Ms. Kononova had fallen when she tried to climb off the morgue table and escape.

An ambulance driver heard the excitement as he entered the building.
He related how the "scared" morgue worker said, "Grandma, lie down, Grandma, be quiet."
The paramedic thought the morgue clerk had gone "crazy" but then saw the pensioner take the woman's hand and ask for help.
Ms. Kononova was covered with blankets and rushed to the intensive care unit.
The hospital called the grandmother's niece, Tatiana Kulikova, and a senior doctor said to her, “We have an unusual situation. She lives! & # 39;
Ms. Kulikova rushed to the hospital when a team of medics from the regional capital, Kursk, was sent to treat Ms. Kononova.

Ms. Kulikova was pleased that her aunt was alive, but asked the doctors, "How did this happen?"
She learned that Ms. Kononova had been recorded clinically dead for 15 minutes and was "literally withdrawn from the other world."
Ms. Kulikova said, “At first she didn't recognize me or remembered that she had an operation. But she did talk about her old knee problem. & # 39;
A doctor and anesthesiologist later confessed that they sent Ms. Kononova to the morgue an hour and 20 minutes after she died, instead of two hours as the rules dictate.
The lifelong pensioner was transferred to Kursk for further treatment.

Roman Kondratenko, chief physician at Gorshechensky Central District Hospital, has been suspended for an investigation.
Relatives of the retiree reportedly plan to sue the hospital.
Acting hospital director Alexander Vlasov said: "The patient was resuscitated for 30 minutes."
Mrs. Kononova didn't answer, he said.
"As a result, the resuscitation doctor diagnosed and diagnosed biological death," he added. & # 39;The anesthetist is very concerned. She feels very bad and we are scared for her.
& # 39; Everyone makes mistakes. What will happen next to this anesthesiologist's career is still a question. & # 39;
