Woman Finds Mother Alive in the Morgue

September 28, 2011  |  
1 of 1

The authorities have told you that your mother has passed and you have to identify her body at the morgue.

This was Rosangela Celestrino’s story. But her story didn’t end like most people in the morgue. She actually left with her mother. Celestrino, the young Brazilian woman, said she went to kiss her mother and noticed she as breathing.

It’s a generally happy story aside from the fact that Celestrino’s mother laid in a cold morgue for two hours.

The doctor who pronounced Celestrino’s mother dead was fired. Source

God bless he mother and her daughter and I hope they have happy lives, until the lady's REAL time to depart comes.

    "Celestrino's mother laid in a cold morgue for two hours" is what you wrote. You confuse forms of "lie," meaning "to be in a resting position," and "lay," meaning "to place or to put something down." "Laid," the past tense of "lay," means "placed or put down." Confusedly, "laid" is the past tense of "lay," so that, when you wrote "mother laid in a cold morgue," you unintentionally wrote that C.'s mother placed or put something down in the morgue. The past tense of "lie" is not "laid" but "lay." Please write: "C.'s mother LAY in a cold morgue." I'm glad she's alive.

    • Tim Roberts

      Actually, the word “laid” would be correct because it wasn’t permanent and it implies she got up. If she “lay” there it would mean death and not moving again. Maybe you should go take some remedial English courses or a semester or two in an adult education class.

    Jason, Have you ever heard the phrase FYI ? For your information.

    I believe her story. My mother told me that the same thing happened to me at birth. I was pronounced dead by a doctor after several attempts to revive me. My mom whose now a retired nurse, saw me laying in bed pulseless and starting to turn blue. She said that the nurses cleaned me up and then took my body to the morgue. A friend of my mother whom was a nurse on duty that day was walking by the morgue when she heard a baby crying, she immediately called the doctor and nurses and by God’s miracle I was fine. Every test came back normal. They couldnt explain…..long story short, I’m 36 now with three beautyful girls and a wife I love more each day…..and I work as a medic saving lives.

      It happened to a friend of mine ; also a grown man now. His mother wanted to see the dead baby and it revived in her arms. He has an unusual body structure though. Everything we have on the right side is on his left , and the other way around; otherwise he is in perfect health.

  • JustSaying

    lucky they didn't cut her up yet…ouch! lucky her daughter was there.

  • wayne

    Ever notice that stories like this always take place in some far off place, where the story can't be verified!

I have so much to say now that one person is goin from my life. My sweet little Amie.

  • Kaie

    Well it doesn't say. Does anyone know where she was taken to the morgue from-a hospital, laying in the street, her home? And what did they say she supposedly died from (yes I know obviously an autopsy wasn't performed yet, but what did the Dr. that pronounced say that "killed her?) A lot missing from this story.

  • LaTasha

    Please don’t act like in the U.S. we are not negligent. You see the commercials everyday about the side effects of all these drugs that were supposed to be safe.

  • tbone ra

    My doctor murdered me in 1991 and 21 yrs later I am back from the dead….it cost me $50,000 (’91 dollars). . . for The Treatment/Torture. Look for the book ‘Kamp UCLA and the German Body Mechanics’…..available soon on the web and in hard copy ~so that it never happens again. . . . 777

  • kristi

    stomach…….. yowchhhhh. goody bags trick or treating :DD

  • Omg….That's crazy. My heart would have shattered to a million peaces to hear my mother is dead….but then to find out that it's not even true…I'd probably be crying alll week. No joke

  • Dev

    she shoulda been given his job. interviewer: "is this person dead or alive?" Rosangela: "well they're breathing…"

  • Candy

    That doctor better lose his license too! Pronouncing someone dead when they're breathing.

    • JDP

      People can breath very shallowly and appear to be dead (even to trained professions – aka doctors) thus that by itself is an honest mistake. This lady may have been breathing more heavily when the daughter was there. However, the doctor should have known better then to trust the appearance of no breath as a means to determine someone is dead.

  • Greetings –

    A resurrection – mama rose again. Hallelujah!

  • Jennie

    They would have to lay me out next to my momma because I'd die from heart failure! You think the person is dead and they start to stir. Lawd!
