You fall asleep one day, and wake up to find you're in a morgue, with morticians waiting to perform an autopsy.
That terrifying nightmare happened to one man this week, after doctors pronounced him dead on Sunday, only to discover he was still alive. Gonzalo Montoya Jiménez, a prisoner in Spain, was found unconscious in his cell on Sunday morning, local newspaper La Voz de Asturias reports. Shortly afterward, he was pronounced dead by three doctors at the prison, having found no signs of life.
His "body" was bagged up and then moved to the mortuary at the Institute of Legal Medicine in Oviedo, where he was prepared for autopsy. This included putting marks over his body, which are used to guide the coroner. His family were even informed that he had died.
Thankfully, before the autopsy could be performed, the 29-year-old started showing signs of life, which were noticed by the forensic team preparing him for autopsy, his family told La Voz de Asturias. He was transferred to an ICU in a nearby hospital where he recovered enough to talk. Upon waking, he asked about his wife, who has been allowed to visit him in hospital.
Doctors say his brain had been starved of oxygen during the ordeal, but the fact that he's talking and remembering are good signs of recovery.
So why was he mistaken for dead?...it is believed that it could be a case of catalepsy.... Catalepsy symptoms include rigidity, unresponsiveness, and loss of muscle control, as well as slowing of vital bodily functions (such as breathing)...Catalepsy is itself a symptom of epilepsy...

The first question here is, Is he going to be free now or going back to jail ?

Sounds to me like somebody drugged him in an effort t harvest his organs for trafficking. Remember that organs for transplant have to be taken fresh. Cant use hours dead organs deprived of blood and oxygen for too long. These doctors were clearly paid off and the surgeon was not anticipating he would wake up before they get their cut.
Betcha if somebody sticks to the story and follows the names of those involved, there will be disappearances or accidents to those involved who failed to get his flesh.

Man Wakes Up In Morgue After Being Declared Dead By Three Separate Doctors
"Dr. Rodonaia was killed by the KGB, pronounced dead, taken to the morgue for three days and returned to life during his own autopsy. Dr. Rodonaia was a psychiatric researcher who worked for the KGB and later became a dissident. He was a scientist trained in historical materialism and did not believe in God."
"George Rodonaia underwent one of the most extended cases of a near-death experience ever recorded. Pronounced dead immediately after he was hit by a car in 1976, he was left for three days in the morgue. He did not "return to life" until a doctor began to make an incision in his abdomen as part of an autopsy procedure. Prior to his NDE he worked as a neuropathologist. He was also an avowed atheist. LINK
The story is unique also because George's body was frozen. The current scientific paradigm requires the assumption that human consciousness is neurologic and that this neurologic process requires a highly efficient chemical reaction. A frozen state cannot maintain such a chemical reaction.
