A pensioner in Russia 'came back from the dead' after waking from a night in a hospital morgue.



Zinaida Kononova was pronounced dead after undergoing intestinal surgery and was transported to the morgue. However, a staff member ''got the shock of her life'' when she found the woman alive and well but sprawled on the floor.

Her niece Tatiana was delighted to see that she was actually alive but was angry at hospital staff.

She reportedly asked doctors incredulously: ''How could this happen?''

Tataina said that Zinaida has been ''literally pulled back from another world''.

She added: ''She initially did not recognise me or recall that she had a surgery.

''But she talked about her old knee problem.''
