He was declared dead at the scene of the accident and his body was transported to the mortuary, where his body was placed in a fridge.
But this sad story took a strange twist later.
According to reports,
“When his family arrived for identification purposes a pulse was found in the patient by mortuary staff, who then immediately transported him to Mahatma Gandhi hospital for resuscitation,”
Msizi was resuscitated by nurses and his family was informed of his resuscitation. However, five hours later, Msizi unfortunately died.
His irate dad Peter Mkhize said:
“I have no words to express how I feel about what happened to my child. “To spend the entire night and morning in the mortuary refrigerator is wrong.”
The distraught dad described the rollercoaster of emotions that began with him arriving at the morgue at 8am to identify his son’s body and was informed some four hours later that his son was in fact alive – only for him to once again be declared dead five hours after that.
